Methodist Charlton Auxiliary

Founded in August 2010, the Methodist Charlton Medical Center Auxiliary is a group of community-minded volunteers who have come together to raise awareness through fundraising for the programs and services available at Methodist Charlton Medical Center. Since 2010, the Auxiliary has raised and distributed over $125,000.

General meeting information and Auxiliary programs

General meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month (except for June, July, August, and December) from 12:30 – 2 p.m. at Methodist Charlton.

Programs include a guest speaker, information about Methodist Charlton Auxiliary events, and an opportunity to socialize with other like-minded individuals. During these luncheons, Auxiliary members are introduced to the various departments and services available at Methodist Charlton or learn about relevant healthcare topics, such as heart health, breast cancer awareness, or current issues like COVID-19.

Auxiliary members participate in various ways, such as staffing hospital events, working on committees, volunteering at the popcorn stand, and serving in leadership roles. Anyone 14 years of age or older is welcome to become an Auxiliary member. Annual membership dues are $25, which help cover the cost of lunches that are served during the general meetings.


Fundraising events are currently on hold due to COVID-19 safety precautions. We hope to resume them soon.

  • Popcorn Friday is a weekly event in the main lobby of Methodist Charlton, during which Auxiliary volunteers sell $1 bags of popcorn from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Since its inception in 2012, this fundraiser has raised over $37,000.
  • The Christmas Vendor Fair is a staple at Methodist Charlton, raising $2,500 to $3,000 annually. Since the event’s inaugural year in 2012, the Auxiliary has featured over 40 vendors that rent tables and sell items such as clothing, jewelry, food, and electronics, to the community and staff.
  • The Tour of Tables luncheon is held each May and features a speaker or entertainment. Tables are sponsored by local companies, community members, and Auxiliary members and entered into the themed table-decorating contest, with prizes awarded to the winning tables. In 2022, if CDC guidelines permit, the Tour of Tables theme will be a Boot-Scootin’ Lunch and Fundraiser with entertainment and silent auction.

Programs and services the Auxiliary supports

  • Women’s Imaging department to fund mammograms for uninsured patients.
  • Dr. Stephen and Marilyn Mansfield Oncology Unit at Methodist Charlton.
  • Healthcare workers, who in 2020 received goodie bags in appreciation for their efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
  • Emergency department, intensive care unit, and COVID-19 unit healthcare teams, which received meals on two separate occasions.
