PMC Auxiliary Awards 20 Scholarships

The Parrish Medical Center Auxiliary recently awarded 20 scholarships of $1,000 each to students living in the North Brevard Hospital District who are pursuing a degree in a health-related field and have a grade point average of 3.0 or better. The Parrish Medical Center Auxiliary was founded in 1959 to provide volunteer services throughout the hospital. Today, the Auxiliary consists of over 400 adult and teenage volunteers. Auxiliary members not only perform necessary duties for hospital staff, but also manage the Pink Angel Gift Shop and conduct annual fundraising activities. As a result, the Auxiliary donates more than $150,000 to the hospital each year.
