Here’s a way to look for a gift for a loved one that also benefits your local community. The annual holiday sale, sponsored by the Auxiliary of Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital, may have just what you want to give that special someone.
On Tuesday, Nov. 28 and Wednesday, Nov. 29, 8 AM to 4 PM, the hospital’s first-floor conference room will become a shop filled with an assortment of books, educational games and unique gifts for all ages. In partnership with the organization, Books Are Fun/Collective Goods, each purchase helps the Auxiliary support special projects, scholarships and equipment needs for the hospital.
The sale is open to the public. Previous sales this year have helped the Auxiliary provide scholarships for nursing students, purchase benches for the Waldport Clinic, support enhancements in oncology services at the hospital and provide continuing education scholarships for hospital employees.
