Each September, the Queens General Hospital Auxiliary holds the annual Hospital Hustle. This long standing community event brings together dozens of volunteers, supported by community organizations and businesses, to raise money for much needed equipment for the hospital. Hustle activities include tables of books, plants, vegetables, baked goods, and unique treasures. An auction and Docs' Dogs are annual favourites.
The Auxiliary also operates the Gift Shop, Monday - Friday: 9:30am - 4pm and Saturday: 1pm - 4pm, on the main level of Queens General Hospital.
The Foundation welcomes individuals, community organizations and businesses, schools, and service clubs, to support health care in our community by hosting a fundraiser and donating the money raised to the Foundation. This can be an annual special event, such as a dinner, a weekly activity like Casual Fridays, or something in between. We ask that you review our Fundraising Event Guidelines and complete our registration form so we are aware of your event or activity and ensure it meets our guidelines and values.
There are many ways to give to the Queens General Hospital Foundation – by mail, in person and online.
