Pop-up shopping event to support patient care at Jamestown Regional Medical Center
The event is Dec. 3-4 at Babb's Coffee House
JRMC Auxiliary is hosting a two-day pop-up shopping event featuring holiday decor, clothing and accessories from the Jamestown Regional Medical Center Gift Shoppe on Friday, Dec. 3, and Saturday, Dec. 4. All proceeds support patient care.
"Visitation at JRMC is limited, so we're creating a safe and physically distanced shopping experience at Babb's Coffee House," said Marlene Axtman, president of JRMC Auxiliary. "We want to continue to support JRMC care in the region while offering people unique holiday items and clothes you can't find at other retail stores."
Babb's Coffee House donates the space and is recognized as a JRMC Foundation Community Difference Partner for giving at a level of $1,000 or more each year.
"We rely on collaboration and community to fund innovation, patient care services and so much more," said Lisa Jackson, JRMC Foundation director.
JRMC Foundation funds cancer care, volunteer services like Driven to Care and chaplaincy. New equipment purchased this year will help with early detection of breast cancer, surgical procedures and add additional comfort measures.
JRMC Auxiliary consists of more than 40 individuals who volunteer their time helping patients and fundraising. Since 1973, JRMC Auxiliary has raised more than $434,000 for JRMC Foundation.
"We support JRMC because we know we all rely on the care," Axtman said. "JRMC also supports our children and grandchildren, so we want the hospital to continue to grow and succeed."
The event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 3, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, at Babb's Coffee House meeting room. Those attending are asked to wear a mask.
