Are you looking for an activity that combines both service to the community and great personal satisfaction? If the answer is yes, consider joining the Eastern Plumas Health Care Auxiliary. EPHC Auxiliary is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide support to the Eastern Plumas Health Care District.
The health and welfare of members of the community is the Auxiliary's first priority and it addresses this by providing funding for the purchase of medical equipment for the Portola Hospital and regional Clinics.
Nifty Thrifty, the Auxiliary thrift store in Portola, is the primary source of monies raised. The volunteers enjoy various aspects of retail sales such as sorting, repairing, pricing, and ultimately selling a variety of donated goods. However, if retail sales is not for you, there are many other opportunities for service. You might enjoy greeting patients and families in the Portola Hospital lobby on procedure days, or perhaps sponsor blood drives or participate in the health fair at Plumas Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative's annual membership meeting.
Membership dues are only $5.00 per year. All are welcome to join even if your commitment is only on a seasonal basis. If active participation is not currently an option, join and receive the quarterly newsletter and stay informed regarding Auxiliary events.
Thank you for taking the time to check us out on the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce website! We hope you will have discovered a great reason to join the EPHC Auxiliary.
