Being involved in giving, whether it is financial support or a generous gift of time, connects you directly with the hospital’s healing mission and its commitment to providing the best possible care for each patient. Every contribution, regardless of its size, is an investment in the future.

From operating the Carousel gift shop to coordinating the annual Hospital Ball, the Auxiliary has helped raise funds to help pay for every improvement and project the hospital has undertaken since the 1920’s. Auxiliary funds have also helped pay for scholarships and vitally needed hospital equipment. The “dedicated and distinguished service on behalf of the hospital” carried out by the Riverside Shore Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has been recognized by the American Hospital Association.

Contributions to local healthcare through the Foundation have been an important part of helping us to provide excellent medical care in state-of-the-art facilities — ensuring a brighter, healthier future for ourselves, our children and our community.

Our men, women and junior volunteers are invaluable in the help they provide to patients, visitors and staff. Each person who chooses to become part of the volunteer program is selected and trained to fill a variety of functions.
