Auxiliary gift shop
The Medina Regional Hospital Auxiliary is a volunteer service organization that has raised more than $400,000 since opening the gift shop in 1985. The auxiliary manages the gift shop in the hospital and has held several charity gala fundraisers over the years. Funds raised have been used to purchase medical equipment for the hospital.
The auxiliary sells a variety of items in the shop, including a nice selection of jewelry, sunglasses and handbags; handmade afghans; candy; gift sets for newborns and new mothers; books and lots of small, unique gifts for birthdays, showers and last-minute occasions. The gift shop is run entirely by volunteers with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Medina Regional Hospital.
The auxiliary is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Tax-deductible contributions and memorials can be sent to: MRH Auxiliary, c/o Esther Johnson, President, 3100 Ave. E, Hondo, TX 78861. Meetings are held quarterly. New volunteers are always welcome.
