Volunteering at Frisbie Memorial Hospital can be a very rewarding experience. Volunteers play a key role by providing extra support to hospital services. As a result, volunteers add to the QUALITY of healthcare at Frisbie by helping patients, their families, hospital staff, and the community at-large. In addition, Frisbie volunteers automatically become members of our Auxiliary program. (See Auxiliary information below)

The Frisbie Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is an active organization of dedicated women and men volunteering their time for fundraising initiatives to benefit patient care programs as well as to fund their annual Student Healthcare Scholarship program. The Auxiliary’s membership includes all Frisbie volunteers, as well as many dedicated individuals from the Greater Rochester communities, including Farmington, Somersworth, Milton, Barrington, Strafford, New Durham, Berwick and Lebanon, Maine.
The Auxiliary’s History
The Auxiliary began in 1923 as the “Hospital Aid” which made and supplied all of the hospital’s linens. After becoming incorporated in 1952, fundraising became its primary mission, and in 1954 the Hospital Aid purchased its first piece of equipment for Frisbie. In 1981, the Hospital Aid was renamed the Frisbie Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. Major contributions for equipment purchases and expansion of services to patients have been made over the years in excess of two million dollars.
The Auxiliary president is Pam Hubbard. She oversees the direction of the Auxiliary’s fundraising initiatives, which funds the Annual Student Healthcare Scholarship program, and also helps support Frisbie’s Patient Care Services. Annual fundraising events include: The Auxiliary Annual Golf Tournament in August; a Fall Fundraiser; and the Lights of Love program, as well as other miscellaneous fundraising initiatives throughout the year.
