Ways to Give  | Greene County

About

Volunteer opportunities for all ages are available through the Greene County Medical Center Auxiliary, a group which has served the medical center, its patients, visitors and staff for over 50 years.

When you are a member of the Greene County Medical Center Auxiliary you are working with those, like you, who want to reach out and help others.  It's a positive and fun experience.

The Auxiliary has donated more than $600,000 to Greene County Medical Center in the last 50 years.  They have made significant donations of equipment, furnishings and materials.  They also award annual scholarships and assist many departments and clinics in the medical center.  In 2021, they celebrated 60 years of service to the medical center.
