The CentraState Associated Auxiliaries have been making a difference in our region by fundraising for and volunteering at the Medical Center for over 50 years. The Associated Auxiliaries welcome anyone interested in supporting the medical center.
These dedicated members of our region work tirelessly throughout the year sponsoring a farmers market, jewelry sales. food tasting events, and a variety of sales on the medical center campus. In 2021 despite the pandemic the Auxiliaries raised $27,465.53 which helped support the Cardiovascular Interventional Suite, cancer care, and thanks to our Junior Auxiliary a portion supported the Behavioral Health department.
The Associated Auxiliaries also offer annual scholarships as part of their regional support. Since 1999, 138 local students have been awarded $500 scholarships.
The Associated Auxiliaries also have completed a pledge of $150,000 to the Cancer Campaign which focused on the creation of a regional, destination cancer center linking cancer care with survivor care. They also completed a $180,000 pledge to the Live Life Well campaign providing a new Mobile Health Awareness Van which promotes regional wellness on site at area workplaces, senior centers, fairs and other public events, and regional organizations in New Jersey. This van helps extend the reach and availability of many of the services and resources provided by CentraState Medical Center.
The Auxiliaries have raised more than $3.5 million for CentraState, making many building and service enhancement projects possible. Their work is truly amazing and much appreciated.
