CEO, Steve Lail thanks Auxiliary President, Pat Hennessey for the very generous $1000 donation to the hospital.

Machias – The Down East Community Hospital Auxiliary donated $1,000 to the hospital’s annual Light A Life fundraiser which brought the total funds raised to $6,200. The funds raised for this year’s event will go towards National Youth Speaker programs for Washington County youth from grades 6 – 12. These events will center around providing a message of hope, be candid about tough topics that are prevalent in our area such as mental health, substance abuse, and bullying and leave our pre-teens and teens with tools to deal with these issues.

CEO, Steve Lail, on the Auxiliary’s latest donation, “The Auxiliary has been an integral part of the hospital since 1964 and we are forever grateful for all they do. They not only hold fundraisers to help support the hospital, but they are also our tireless ambassador to the community and treasured members of the DECH family.”
