The Women’s Auxiliary has a strong tradition of providing many little extras for all branches of Mission Services through their offerings and special fundraising initiatives. Some of these funds go towards the purchase of much needed household items for The Mission Store. Their efforts to acknowledge the hard work of the staff in thoughtful ways are also much appreciated.
