Volunteers and Auxiliary

Volunteers are seldom paid ‐ not because they are worthless, but because they are "priceless."

Sakakawea Medical Center enjoys working with volunteers and we offer a variety of volunteer opportunities. Volunteers can participate through the hospital Auxiliary; directly with our Swing Bed patients; Senior Suites programs and residents; or behind the scenes throughout the facility.

SMC Auxiliary has been supporting the hospital in many ways for over 71 years. The SMC Auxiliary is known best for their Annual Turkey Dinner held every April as a fundraiser. Other events that are sponsored by the Auxiliary include: an employee tea, the hospital gift shop, love lights and Auxiliary quilt raffle.

Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. in the hospital board room during the months of September through May.

The purpose of the Auxiliary is to:

  • Promote and advance the welfare of Sakakawea Medical Center
  • Acquaint the public with the mission of Sakakawea Medical Center
  • Engage in fundraising activities
  • Help out with other charitable works that promote the values, mission and charitable purposes of Sakakawea Medical Center
