â€œThe Hospital's Gift Shop is the hometown gift shop,â€ Auxiliary President Charlotte Furbee said. â€œWe carry specialty items that you won't find anywhere else in this area. We want everyone to know about the great shop we have right here in our own community and invite them to stop in to see the beautiful items that are avaialble.â€
The shop has a large selection of baby items, a country corner and fashionable purses and tote bags, along with unique jewelry pieces, porcelain dolls, pottery, silk floral arrangements and many seasonal and holiday items. ACH's Gift Shop is owned by the Hospital Auxiliary and open Monday through Saturday.
The Alliance Community Hospital Auxiliary is comprised of a Board of Trustees that operate under the direction of an Executive Committee. The Auxiliary actively raises funds to be used to compliment the projects and services offered at ACH. They meet monthly to determine what areas will receive funding. All proceeds from the Gift Shop and The Eatery located in the hospital fund this organization and its goal of making ACH a better hospital.
The Auxiliary has many fundraising events that take place throughout the year and these events have helped numerous areas of the hospital. The organization funded half the price of the shuttle car used by ACH, as well as the construction of the Women's ImagingCenter through a donation of $75,000. Last year, the Auxiliary purchased over $30,000 worth of equipment for several hospital departments. The Auxiliary also helps the local community by funding annual scholarships for graduating seniors entering the medical field.
The ACH Auxiliary welcomes new members year round. The annual dues are $5 and the Auxiliary gives all new members a $5 gift certificate to the Gift Shop or The Eatery. Interested community members can contact the Volunteer Department at 330-596-7822 or 330-596-7821 to discuss becoming a member.
If you have not been to the Gift Shop lately, this will be a great day to stop and check out all of the new items!
