What we do
The purpose of the Surrey Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is to raise funds to support patient comforts. All money raised is done through the remarkable efforts of our active force of volunteers that contribute their time, skills and efforts to these programs.
The Gift Shop
The SMH Auxiliary Gift Shop serves all of Surrey Memorial Hospital. It is the “go to store” where visitors purchase patient gifts for children, teens and adults. From fresh flower bouquets to stuffed animals, toys, get well cards, personal care items, snacks and reading material, we have it all. The Gift Shop is located at the top of the elevator of the Critical Care Tower (located off of 94A and King George Blvd.). Click here to volunteer for the Gift Shop.
Penny Savers’ Thrift Store
The Auxiliary Thrift Store sells a large selection of gently used items. Fully operated by SMH Auxiliary volunteers, 100% of all proceeds from sales go directly to SMH patient care and comforts. Serving the city of Surrey and North Delta, it is our highest grossing program and offers volunteers a variety of opportunities to work with the public or behind the scenes. The Penny Savers’ Thrift Store is located at Scott Road and 82nd Avenue in Surrey. Click here to volunteer for the Penny Savers’ Thrift Store.
Located at the top of the elevator of the Critical Care Tower near the Gift Shop, the SMH Auxiliary Lottery Booth is a busy centre of activity. It’s the perfect place for volunteers who like to work with the public. Each day we sell hundreds of tickets. Click here to volunteer for the Lottery Booth.
SMH Auxiliary Gift Cart
The Auxiliary Gift Cart is the gift shop on wheels filled with goodies, gifts, babywear, toiletries and reading material for hospital patients, visitors and staff. Volunteers enjoy taking the Cart around to the various hospital wards offering the items for sale. The assortment makes the Cart appealing, versatile and very accommodating to people’s needs. Volunteering for the Cart program is perfect for those who like to be on the move meeting and engaging with new people. Click here to volunteer for the Auxiliary Gift Cart.
Third Party Events
When planning special events like birthdays or seasonal parties, SMH Auxiliary volunteers and friends of the Auxiliary ask guests to give a donation in lieu of gifts.
