The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary, was started by housewives wanting to contribute to the hospital. They gathered in each others’ homes and since very few housewives at the time had a car at their disposal, small regional groups were formed.

The group names reflected the geographic area of the group. Although we are one Auxiliary Society, we still have smaller groups within the organization contributing to the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary Society.

Each group under the Auxiliary Society umbrella are having fun raising funds AND performing acts of kindness in any way they can.  These groups specialize in a few specific areas, but also do many other jobs.
