Auxiliary wreaths a sellout

Although the white of winter may not be here yet the green of Christmas is here to get you in the spirit. The Aberdeen Hospital Auxiliary was spreading that Christmas cheer by selling decorated wreaths as a fundraiser.

This year marks the sixth year the auxiliary has held the fundraiser with it getting increasingly bigger each year. The group had ordered 40 wreaths their first year and that number has since climbed to 206 this year as they ordered a few more than last year.

The group was stationed at the former Scotiabank location in the Westside Plaza, New Glasgow selling the items daily daily until they sold out. They have sold out!

“All the money goes to the hospital auxiliary,” said Sharon MacDonald, one of the organizers.”We’re looking at buying patient lifts.”

Along with going toward patient lifts, MacDonald shared that it is also a goal of the auxiliary with help from this and other fundraisers to be able to hire a music therapist for the hospital.
