The Power of Giving

A Message About COVID-19 From Jean Meloro, Auxiliary President

Dear Auxiliary Members,

These are unprecedented times for our community and the world. As we have all had to hit the pause button on our busy lives and reassess what is important, I hope that you and your families are well and safe.

The members of The Valley Hospital Auxiliary have always known the value of excellent medical care. It is in times like these that we truly appreciate the extraordinary care and treatment offered by The Valley Hospital and our healthcare providers. Thank you to those working to keep us healthy.

Even though many upcoming Auxiliary events have been rescheduled, I am looking forward to the time when we can all get together again.

Thank you for all you do and be well.

The Valley Hospital Auxiliary was a major catalyst in the founding of the hospital, raising funds and establishing community support years before the hospital opened. Today's Auxiliary, which consists of members from many local communities, remains an integral part of hospital life.

Our Mission

The mission of The Valley Hospital Auxiliary is to:

  • Serve as community liaison for the hospital
  • Assist the hospital through a variety of traditional and non-traditional volunteer services
  • Raise funds for vital hospital programs

Our Pledge

Since its inception, the Auxiliary has helped serve local communities by raising funds for specific healthcare programs and services. To date, the Auxiliary has donated more than $18 million to Valley.

The Auxiliary’s current pledge is to raise $3 million to establish the Pediatric Section of the Emergency Department at The Valley Hospital in Paramus, and $100,000 for Valley Home Care’s endowment for Butterflies, a pediatric in-home palliative and hospice care program for seriously ill children. 

Ready to support our pledge? Make a donation today.

Auxiliary Events

The Auxiliary’s events are always the talk of the town! In addition to having a great time, attendees contribute to the Auxiliary’s pledge to support the hospital.

Local branches of the Auxiliary also host fashion shows, guest speakers, raffles, theater trips and more.
