The Outreach Planning Committee extends Auxiliary generosity beyond ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital to benefit community charitable organizations and projects within our service area. The following are examples of committee activities:
- Local organizations who have received donations during the first six month of the 2019 fiscal year include b-CAUSE We Care, Cancer Angels 4 Kids, Haus of Peace, Oconomowoc Food Pantry, and Western Lakes Fire District.
- A gift will be made to Oconomowoc Public Library to support a future Memory Café program. This library project is provided for those living with memory loss and their caregivers and family members.
- Charitable organizations who received Auxiliary support in 2018 include Grilling2Give, Hartland-Lakeside School District Angel Fund, Healing Hearts of Waukesha County, Lake Area Free Clinic, Oconomowoc Area Senior Center, Redeem and Restore, Tricia’s Troops, and Okauchee American Legion Post #399.
- Additional funding opportunities will be thoughtfully considered, and recipient organizations will be announced.
In addition to supporting community organizations and projects, the Outreach Planning Committee represents the Auxiliary at local farmers markets, Lake Country Community Fest, LakeWalk for Cancer, and other community events. The group shares information about Auxiliary programs and volunteer opportunities with the public at these gatherings. A sturdy, helpful Medical & Household Emergency Information envelope and an educational children’s coloring and activities book are also available.
