Through fundraising efforts, Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary provides financial donations to health care facilities and organizations in our community to support the ongoing comfort and care of our citizens.  The Auxiliary is made up of members who donate their time to the operation of the Thrift Shop, as well as to other initiatives such as Meals on Wheels, Tea Service and Candy Stripers at the Chemainus Health Care Centre.

The Thrift Shop is the main source of revenue for our Auxiliary, and it has been in business since 1958.  We have an excellent reputation all over Vancouver Island as “the place to go” for quality second-hand goods at very reasonable prices. Our shop is clean, well organized and it has over 100 dedicated volunteers working tirelessly towards our success.
