Ashcroft Health Auxiliary nears 100 years old

Ashcroft & District Health Care Auxiliary raises money for local and nearby health services.

The Ashcroft & District Health Care Auxiliary will be 100 years old next year.

The Ashcroft Health Care Auxiliary Thrift Shop is located behind the Village Office and is open Wednesday and Friday from noon until 4 pm.

Our thanks go out to all the patrons of our Thrift Shop and the showcase located in the Health Site. We also would like to thank all the donors to the Thrift Shop – without them, we could not operate.

Our monies are spent on projects or equipment for health care in our communities. Over the years, with changes in our health care system, the auxiliary has been forced to change its focus somewhat. We continue to purchase equipment for our Health Site, but now  also purchase equipment or donate funds to other health care facilities used by our residents. Last year we donated $10,000 to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation to be used used for various programs. We also donated funds to the South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society for their programs, as well as to the Variety Club.

Our 8th annual Christmas Sale is being held on Dec. 1 from 10 am to noon at the Ashcroft Community Hall. We have partnered with the Interchurch Bazaar which runs from noon until 2 pm in the Zion church hall on the same day.
