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.
