Auxiliary donates

At the Warren General Hospital volunteer luncheon, auxiliary president Gwenn Scutella presented two donation checks from auxiliary coffers. A check for $50,000 was presented to WGH CEO John Papalia for the Cancer Care Center. This was part of the $150,000 pledge the auxiliary made in 2011 to the Cancer Care Center. The second donation check of $18,000 was presented to the Rev. Marcus Briggs for his dedicated chaplaincy work at the hospital. The auxiliary believes his ministry and his presence at WGH help patients as well as staff. The dues paid by auxiliary members, the many sales, basket auctions and the annual summer gala all make these donations possible.
