About us

Auxiliary in business to buy medical equipment & amenities for hospital

We are the Auxiliary of the Victoria General Hospital -- a diverse group of women and men dedicated to raising money to purchase equipment and amenities for the Victoria General Hospital.  We run a gift shop, staffed entirely by our volunteer/members, where all our profits are invested in Vic General.  We are a Canadian charity #888879392RR0001.  Additional fund-raising is through the sale of Purdy’s chocolate bars at a stand on the concourse of the hospital and by bringing a shopping cart of toiletries, candy, magazines and newspapers directly to the wards – to say nothing of our sale of holiday plants, small sales, and the Auxiliary cookbook.  We built the Oasis@3North:  A project of the AUXILIARY.
Our fundraising efforts over more than three decades have provided Victoria General Hospital with millions of dollars in needed and valued equipment.

If you sent your money in response to a phone call or an email, you can probably kiss it good-bye forever.
