Auxiliary to UHNBC

WELCOME!

The Auxiliary to University Hospital of Northern B.C. has been an integral part of the hospital since 1919 except  during the war years when it was not actively functioning. We are a non-profit community based society that is committed to the enhancement of health care in our hospital. Our strength lies with our members who dedicate their time, support and knowledge in one of our many services.

OUR MANDATE
 
To provide resources, volunteers and funding.
 
To foster and promote the well-being and comfort of patients.
 
To provide scholarships and bursaries to students attending public post-secondary Institutions.
 
To operate a Thrift Shop and Gift Shop to generate income to support the above purposes.
 
 

 

Why Volunteer???

Overheard at the World Volunteer Conference
In response to the observation that volunteers are too often seen as amateurs: "Just remember: Noah's Ark was built by amateurs. The Titanic was built by professionals."
 
Top Ten Reasons to Volunteer
 
10.   The library has confiscated your card for over use
9.   Your solitaire app is starting to repeat games
8.  The soap operas are all re-runs 
7.   When you stay home you get too many telemarketing calls.
6.    On a regular basis, your significant other looks at you and says, “Another meeting today” and you are happy to get out of the house
5.   If you don't go out each day, you get old.
4.  The dog simply does not need that many walks each day
3.  You are an amazing role model for your children and grandchildren
2.  you know in your heart that—whatever evils and problems afflict this world—you are making it a better place.
1.  You get to attend a fabulous Auxiliary AGM every year.
Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy.  You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
