Although the formal Volunteer Auxiliary was dissolved in 2014, the impacts of its financial support for the hospital and its support of the volunteer program have not dimmed. The enduring legacy of the Auxiliary and of the efforts of all of its past presidents and executive committees is the lasting spirit of volunteerism at St. Michael’s. This spirit of engaged volunteerism continues to be fostered at St. Michael’s through the work of the Volunteer Services Department.

We thank all those Auxiliary leaders who had the vision and determination to work tirelessly to ensure that St. Michael’s has benefitted, and will always benefit, from a committed group of volunteers.
