Notice: Nanaimo Auxiliary Thrift Shop will Temporarily Close  due to increasing cases of  COVID-19. As the average age of our volunteer base is 75+, the health and safety of our special, hard-working and dedicated group of women and men, is essential. It is for this reason that the Shop will close for the next few weeks until  we see a decrease in Central Vancouver Island cases. We will be closed to donations as well.

The Nanaimo Auxiliary to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital is a dynamic group of nearly 250 men and women volunteers who have raised over 3 million dollars for our hospital in the last ten years, and provide over 40,000 hours of community service annually. Our prime focus is to be a caring organisation and provide service and financial help for patient care and comfort items, for everyone who uses Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and to encourage support for the hospital within the community.

Our Spirit

The dedication and commitment that our members display is evident everywhere.  Just pop in to the Thrift Store or Gift Shop any time and see for yourself.  We strive to be the best and always have fun doing it.
