Methodist Richardson Medical Center Auxiliary

Serving Our Community

The Methodist Richardson Medical Center Auxiliary is dedicated to service. A volunteer shift may be as diverse as delivering flowers or items from the pharmacy, serving at an information desk, and assisting in the surgery waiting room. Their time also includes hours spent outside the hospital halls, collecting children's books for the emergency department waiting room or sewing cough pillow covers and prayer shawls for patients.

The Auxiliary also raises funds for the hospital, hosting bake sales, jewelry sales, and, during National Nurses Week, a uniform sale. And if you step into Medical Plaza I, you can't miss the aroma of delicious popcorn for sale, the proceeds of which go straight to the hospital. The Auxiliary also recruits and works with Junior Volunteers. These teens learn to serve using their talents – for example, playing the piano in the Methodist Richardson Cancer Center lobby – and how to plan philanthropic events.

Methodist Hospitals of Dallas Guild

Founded in 1932, the Methodist Hospitals of Dallas Guild has a rich history. Guild membership is made up of community leaders from throughout the Dallas and Fort Worth area. The only criterion for membership is an interest in supporting Methodist Health System and a commitment to involvement.

To date, the Guild has raised more than $1,000,000 to fund a wide variety of services, equipment, and expansion of Methodist Health System. Among the projects supported by the Guild; a room in the Emergency Tower, a mobile mammography unit, expansion of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Golden Cross Academic Clinic, as well as annual college scholarships for Junior Volunteers at Methodist Dallas and Methodist Charlton Medical Centers. The Guild raises these funds through our annual Spring Style Show and Luncheon, and jewelry, book, and electronic fairs held at the hospitals.

The group's fundraisers, which include book fairs, electronics sales, jewelry sales and its annual style show, aim to welcome the community into the hospital. "When you invite people who might not otherwise be there for a book sale or style show, it showcases what a fine organization this is," says Guild member Olivette Hubler. "It makes them aware of the hospital and of all the doctors that are here. And it's nice to give back."
