This week, Highland Community Hospital is partnering with Masquerade Fundraising to raise money for the hospital.
The fundraising company helps hospital auxiliaries nationwide raise money by selling jewelry and accessories, Highland Community Hospital’s Volunteer Coordinator Brenda Borland said.
“This money helps our hospital’s departments purchase items that they might not otherwise have in their budget but do need,” Borland said.
Last year, the hospital raised more than $10,000 during the fundraiser, she said.
Highland Community Hospital hosts the two-day event every six months.
“Last year, the labor and delivery department was able to receive educational tools for nurses,” Borland said. “The education department also received CPR equipment.”
Today will be the last day to purchase items from the fundraiser, which will begin at 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Highland Community Hospital’s main lobby.
The items available for purchase include jewelry, purses and other accessories, all of which are $5 each.
“I’d like to thank our volunteers for coming out and helping us during the fundraiser,” Borland said.
After the fundraiser, the hospital will determine where the funds will go, Borland said.
The proceeds will benefit the volunteer services of Highland Community Hospital.
