Your holiday shopping can support healthcare needs for today and the future.

The JRMC Auxiliary hosts a two-day pop-up shopping event featuring holiday decor, clothing, and accessories from the JRMC Gift Shoppe. 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 President of the JRMC Auxiliary, Marlene Axtman. “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. A list of supporters and their giving levels are online at JRMC’s Foundation page.

“We rely on collaboration and community to fund innovation, patient care services and so much more,” said JRMC Foundation Director Lisa Jackson.


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 is an award-winning destination of care for many reasons,” Jackson said. “One of them is the tremendous support from our Auxiliary and the community.”

The Auxiliary consists of more than 40 individuals who volunteer their time helping patients and fundraising. Since 1973 the 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 starts Friday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and continues Saturday, Dec. 4, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Babb’s Coffee House meeting room. Please wear a mask. Learn more at JRMC’s Foundation page.
