Scotland County Hospital Auxiliary Donates Toward Playground Equipment at Daycare
Written by Corey Stott on August 23, 2023
MEMPHIS, Mo.- The Scotland County Hospital Auxiliary recently donated money toward the purchase of new playground equipment at the Tiger Cub Care, a daycare for children of employees at Scotland County Hospital. The outside play area received a complete overhaul from the Hospital’s Maintenance Department. Not only was the new equipment installed for the children at the daycare, but approximately $2,000 of rubber tire chips were delivered and installed as well. In addition to the donation from the Auxiliary, a private donation was also received. Another source of funds for the project is an every other Friday morning breakfast of Biscuits & Gravy for employees by free-will donation. That on-going fundraiser generated nearly $2,000 for the project.
The Auxiliary is a not-for-profit organization that raises money through sales at the Hospital Gift Shop, Antique Days quilt raffle, pecan sales and Christmas Bazaar cookie sales. The Auxiliary meets every third Monday at 1:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Memphis. Membership dues are $1 annually and new members are always welcome.
