Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary

What is the Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary?

The Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary, established in 1963, is a group of men and women dedicated to three goals:

  1. To raise money for Putnam Hospital Center
  2. To serve as volunteers
  3. To act as a liaison and a source of information to the community

Fundraising is a vital part of Auxiliary functions. The fundraising programs include:

The Annual PHC Auxiliary Fair

The Eagle Eye Thrift Shop - Main Street, Brewster, New York

The Eagle Eye Too Thrift Shop - Route 6, Mahopac, New York

The Gift Shop - located in the hospital's main lobby

The Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary has already given 25% of its one million dollar pledge. These monies were raised from the Eagle Thrift Shops, the Putnam Hospital Auxiliary Fair and other fund raising efforts.

In 1998 the Auxiliary donated $256,000.


What is the Volunteer Program?

Putnam Hospital Center's volunteer program is designed to meet a variety of needs and goals. Volunteers augment the hospital staff. Our volunteers do their best to ensure patient comfort. Volunteering is an opportunity to learn new skills and to make new friends.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can volunteer. Men and women of all ages assist the health care team in many areas of the hospital. Every attempt is made to assign volunteers to their specific field of interest.
