A group of volunteers work year around to support Trinity Health.
They are known as the Trinity Auxiliary.
And as Carla Burbidge tells us in this week's Eye on Health, they make the Christmas season special in the nursery.
What could be more wonderful than getting a newborn baby just in time for Christmas. During the month of December, every infant in the nursery at Trinity Health is wrapped in a red stocking when it is time to go home. Each stocking is a handmade gift from the Trinity Ladies Auxiliary. The auxiliary meets once a month, all year long, with a mission to assist the hospital in many different ways, including making many of the items you will find in the Trinity Gift shop. This is their nursery project. Besides the stockings in December, any baby born at Trinity receives a crotched hat. And the New Years Baby will be presented with a basket of gifts. The 200 volunteers have a hand in many projects through out the year.
Margaret Hellebust, Trinity Auxiliary "the ladies enjoy coming together to visit, and come up with ideas for projects"
Margaret is a retired Trinity employee, and many but not all, of the auxiliary members are. She says is a great way to stay in touch and support the hospital.
Margaret, "whatever we do the health organization is foremost"
The nursery project at Christmas time is a special one. Thanks to the Trinity Auxiliary many projects receive a personal touch, day in and day out all year long. For Eye on Health, I'm Carla Burbidge.
