"Neighbors helping neighbors." That describes the Harrington Auxiliary, a growing group of dedicated individuals who have joined together since 1932, a year after the hospital opened. Since then, members have volunteered their time and services to further the well-being of our hospital and the community.

We work to create a friendly, helpful atmosphere in the hospital, and we also build goodwill and lead many fund-raising ventures-including Harrington's Gift Shop, located in the hospital lobby, which we manage along with the Volunteer department.

Every year we award scholarships to area students pursuing careers in health care and offer grants toward equipment and projects at Harrington HealthCare. The Appropriations Grant Program is funded by sales from our newly-renovated Gift Shop.


We invite you to become part of this great tradition and join our Auxiliary. We welcome men and women age 18 and older from the Harrington HealthCare System community. You'll find many opportunities to apply your skills and experiences and address key needs throughout the hospital. You'll also enjoy a variety of social events, expand your knowledge of Harrington's role in the community, and help make a difference in the lives of your neighbors.

For more information or to donate, please call Volunteer Services at 508-765-6472 or 508-765-6471, or check our brochure, which lists our many committees. If you are interested in joining our team, please fill out and mail in the Membership Application in the brochure.
