The Auxiliary

The Shore Medical Center Auxiliary is the medical center’s original fundraising organization, with an incredible 80-year history of philanthropic support and accomplishment. It's rich legacy dating back to 1940 has helped build new facilities and buy new equipment since Shore’s founding. We are very proud of and grateful to all of the Auxiliary members who have generously volunteered their time and effort for the benefit of our patients. The Auxiliary combines fun and a sense of mission to give back to Shore for the care and dedication it provides to the community.

Our Story

An all-volunteer organization, the Auxiliary offers a wide range of programs and activities to which members can contribute their time and energy. From organizing fundraising events, to operating the medical center’s gift shop and two thrift shops, the Auxiliary provides important links to our community.

Our members are hard working, dedicated volunteers of all ages, who enjoy working together to help Shore and our community while also having fun. The Shore Medical Center Auxiliary is a wonderful forum for social interaction, meeting new friends and networking with some of the area’s most dynamic and successful people – all while giving back and ensuring all of us enjoy the highest quality care.

Since 1940, the Auxiliary has contributed more than $16 million to benefit Shore Medical Center. Our Auxiliary exemplifies the great things that happen when a community and its medical center work together.
