February 13, 2009 - Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop offers quality and convenience in Blairsville, Georgia
Union County Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop in Blairsville, Georgia offers an exciting array of merchandise and gifts. Shoppers not only get to choose from many nice products, they also get the satisfaction of knowing their money goes toward helping others.
All profits from the Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop are used to help others in the hospital. Funds have been used to purchase equipment for the neonatal unit and to provide scholarships to local healthcare students.
Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop inventory includes fashion accessories, home décor, jewelry, holiday items, UGA collectables, toys, baby gifts (including Halo Sleep Sacks), cards, candy, flowers, and plants.
The Auxiliary Gift Shop recently held a Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony. Staff, Chamber Ambassadors, members of the business community, and friends turned out to show support for the hospital auxiliary volunteers. Guests received a Valentine's Day discount on all purchases.
Auxiliary President Claudia Parks is excited about the shop's new direction, "We sale quality gift items, not just the usual stuff you find in a hospital gift shop. We offer gifts that no one else in the area is selling because we want to work with the members of the community, not against them." She adds, "I also want to thank the hospital administration and other employees for being our best customers! They are very supportive."
Gift Shop manager Vivian Allen takes an ambitious approach in growing the venture and hopes it will become the major auxiliary fundraiser. Marketing Representative Pat Cook brings many talents to the auxiliary. She is fundamental in promoting gift shop sales. It takes teamwork and many volunteer hours to keep things running smoothly at the Union County Hospital Auxiliary Gift Shop. The ladies and gentlemen in the Hospital Auxiliary do a great job at the gift shop and an even better job of helping others.
If you are interested, the Union County Hospital Auxiliary is always looking for new volunteers to help at the hospital and nursing home. Come be a part of this great Blairsville, Georgia organization!
