auxilian Program

Rich in history and service opportunity, the Adult Auxiliary is our volunteer group. In addition to making a difference, volunteers also participate in social gatherings, recognitions events and fundraising, with sale profits donated to Emory Decatur Hospital, Emory Hillandale Hospital and Emory Long-Term Acute Care to benefit patients and their families.
