  • Volunteers Always Needed

    Calling all residents of Uxbridge...your help is needed. With the announcement and newly begun construction of the new medical building on the Uxbridge Hospital site, we are entering some very exciting times. Our UCH Auxiliary requires more volunteers to help with fundraising. Men, women and students are welcomed. Whether you ...

The Auxiliary has been busy fundraising for the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital through events such as wine/cheese tasting and art auction, and our annual Run for the Diamond Marathon, in the month of June, 2021.

The Auxiliary also has a store, Chances Are, on Bascom Street in Uxbridge which sells gently-used clothing and small housewares. The store is operated by a team of over 90 volunteers.

These fundraising initiatives, have allowed the UCH Auxiliary to donate over $3 million dollars to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Foundation since 2010. The money has been used for diagnostic equipment and upgrading various systems throughout the Hospital.

In September of 1954, the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital Auxiliary held its inaugural meeting, boldly setting out to raise awareness and funds to help build a local Cottage Hospital.  Thanks in large part to those dedicated early members and donors, the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital officially opened its doors in 1959.

In 2019, the Auxiliary marked 65 years of association and service to the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital and the Community – providing daily volunteer support and fundraising millions of dollars for upgrades and changes to help the hospital meet the medical needs of all Uxbridge residents.
