Franklin Foundation Auxiliary

The pink ladies take pride in their accomplishments. Their numerous endeavors include awarding scholarships, buying equipment and educational materials for the hospital and its patients. They assist with periodic blood drives throughout the year. A blood pressure clinic is held every Tuesday morning in the hospital lobby. Gift shop sales, donations, and membership dues enable them to purchase much needed items. In the past year they were able to obtain a new buffer/scrubber for the Environmental Service Department. They also purchased a lengthy list of equipment, utensils, and china for the Dietary Department. A new stationary bicycle was purchased for the Physical Therapy Department. Monetary donations to the Nursery Unit were made so that babies born during the Christmas and New Year Season received individual holiday gift surprises. The pediatric patients were treated to special toys and games throughout the year to make their stay a more pleasant one.

The Pink Ladies are grateful for Patron memberships from community business throughout the years which have assisted them in their fund raising efforts for the hospital. Donations are always gratefully accepted.
