The White Cross Auxiliary’s mission this year is to provide more wheelchairs within the hospital as well as in the medical office buildings on the hospital campus. A person or business can sponsor a wheelchair and have a name placed on the back of a wheelchair for $1,200.

The White Cross Auxiliary appreciates all the support that the community has given over the years to continue our support of the departments within the hospital.

This year’s White Cross Auxiliary fundraiser hopes to raise money for more of the Stax wheelchairs for both the hospital and the surrounding medical office buildings. Left to right are Meg Dorris, Mary Nickel, Irene McLaughlin, Rose Lammers and Bernie Wickenhauser.
