St. Jude Auxiliary

The St. Jude Auxiliary provides volunteer support to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Tri Delta Place, or Target House. The Auxiliary welcomes all volunteers to join us in our mission of supporting hospital programs.  There are two main goals of the Auxiliary; the first is to learn as much as we can about the hospital and the services provided. The second goal is to raise money to support programs that directly benefit the children and families of St. Jude.

Auxiliary Meetings are held quarterly. You do not need to be a member of the Auxiliary to attend and meetings consist of discussion concerning Auxiliary business, a guest speaker from a hospital department, and a free luncheon for all in attendance.
