Mission Regional Medical Center (MRMC) was presented with a $60,000 donation
from the hospital volunteer Auxiliary. The check presentation was made
during the annual Auxiliary Board Installation meeting at The Club at
Cimarron. This significant donation, which represents the proceeds from
the Auxiliary’s 2012-2013 fundraising efforts, will be designated
for various service lines.
Mission Regional Medical Center Auxiliary Board President Russ Winters
presented the donation to Javier Iruegas, CEO. Winters also handed the
gavel to James Burnett, as a symbolic gesture to the newly elected Auxiliary
Board President. The 2013 -2014 MRMC Auxiliary Board of Directors are
James Burnett, President; Jose E. Flores, Senior Vice President; Nancy
Martinez, Vice President of Membership; Annemarie Becker, Treasurer; Rosa
Nea Garza, Assistant Treasurer; Denny Brown, Recording Secretary; and
Federico Salinas, Corresponding Secretary.
Approximately 100 volunteers donate their time each year. MRMC Auxiliary
members have volunteered 32,000 hours of work in several hospital departments,
including the Gift Shop. Amongst the outstanding volunteers stood Nancy
Martinez, who contributed 1,300 hours to the organization.
Funds donated are the proceeds from the Mission Regional Medical Center
Gift Shop. Throughout the year, the hospital Gift Shop holds activities such as
a book fair, bake and jewelry sales, along with other successful sales
events. "The volunteers at our facility have shown incredible commitment
to our patients and the hospital through their volunteer hours. In addition
to their regular volunteer hours, they are always willing to help out
by volunteering extra hours when needed. Their hard work, dedication and
donation of time is invaluable," said Lilliam Santana-Barrera, Director
of Volunteer Services.
