Annual SJMH Auxiliary jewelry sale slated for Thursday, October 17

The Theresa Snaith Hospital Auxiliary operates the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital Gift Shop which helps in funding the various projects for the Hospital.

One of the major fundraisers is the annual Jewelry Sale, held in cooperation with Caplan’s Jewelry Store in Weston.  This year, the sale will be held on Thursday, October 17 from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the SJMH boardroom — just in time for Christmas shopping. 

The Auxiliary has been providing help to the local hospital for more than 50 years. The Auxiliary was established in 1962 after women who had volunteered at Clarksburg’s United Protestant Hospital (the forerunner of the United Hospital Center) decided to provide help for their local Hospital.

Before SJMH, the hospital was called “the City Hospital” and was located on Main Avenue, in Weston.

Over those many years, the group has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Hospital. 

Some of the larger purchases have included bariatric equipment for patients, sleeping sofas for the Special Delivery Unite, and equipment for the Dietary Department.  The group purchased automatic doors for the chemotherapy department and the orthopedic clinic. 

They also created a lovely garden outside of the chemotherapy clinic.

The organization is always looking for new members and interested parties can call the SJMH Marketing Department at 304-269-8167 for more information.
