Since 1924, Junior Auxiliary Board volunteers have been raising funds and providing volunteer services for Peninsula Regional Medical Center and the community.
The Junior Auxiliary Board has donated over $7 million for Medical Center equipment, programs, nursing scholarships and capital improvements. Volunteers amass these funds through various fundraisers and the Junior Board Shop, their primary revenue source. This Shop provides a full service restaurant and a wonderful assortment of gifts for Medical Center visitors and staff. 100% of all proceeds from this Shop are donated back to Peninsula Regional.
The Junior Board Shop, located near the Guerrieri Heart & Vascular Institute Lobby, is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and on weekends from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. The Junior Board Cafe, located in the Frank B. Hanna Outpatient Center, is open Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. and weekends from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.
Volunteers also make infant hats for all Medical Center newborns, hand puppets for pediatric patients, infant blankets for needy newborns, hats for chemotherapy patients and Christmas baby buntings. Junior Board funds support the Wee Care program, provide heart, lung and abdominal "hug" pillows for surgical patients and help meet emergency non-budgeted equipment needs. Currently, the Junior Auxiliary Board is involved in raising funds in support of the Robert T. Adkins Emergency/Trauma Center.
