Auxiliary

For more than 100 years, the Auxiliary has been supporting and enhancing patient care at Yale-New Haven Hospital Saint Raphael Campus.

Auxiliary members raise funds in a variety of ways, including sales from the hospital's Glass Door Gift Shop, as well as the Thrift Shop on Chapel Street. In addition, the Auxiliary sponsors a variety of special activities, including an annual golf tournament.

The Auxiliary was founded in 1908 as the Ladies Aid Society. At that time, their good work came in the form of card parties, holiday teas and other activities which raised enough money to buy the hospital's first motorized ambulance. In more recent years, the money they have raised has been used to purchase heart monitors for hospital recovery rooms, to start the Looking Forward program, and to host events such as health screenings.

Thrift Shop

Offering previously owned clothing, housewares, books, toys, jewelry,small appliances and much more at greatly reduced prices, the Thrift Shop at Yale-New Haven Hospital Saint Raphael Campus is centrally located at the corner of Chapel and Orchard Streets. As a source of gently used clothing, the Thrift Shop has been serving the greater New Haven community for more than two decades and is always looking for donated items.

Managed by the Auxiliary, the shop accepts clothing appropriate to the season (coats, hats, gloves, etc. during fall/winter - lighter jackets, shorts-sleeved shirts, and shorts during spring/summer) that is clean and in good condition. Many items are priced at $5 or less and the shop only accepts cash. Proceeds from the shop benefit the hospital. The Thrift Shop is open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 3 pm.

For more information, please call the shop at 203.789.3312.
