About Our Volunteer Program

Auxiliary to Driscoll Children's Hospital

Volunteers are members of the Auxiliary to Driscoll Children's Hospital and give their time and hearts to the children of South Texas. Through fundraising efforts, the Auxiliary financially supports Driscoll Children’s Hospital, having contributed over $6 million since its inception in 1952. Some gifts to Driscoll include $750,000 toward the Pavilion Neonatal Intensive Care Center, $750 toward the Pavilion Heart Center, $100,000 toward the Neonatal Care Center, $100,000 for the purchase of cardiology equipment in Driscoll’s Heart Center, $45,000 toward the Driscoll Pediatric Sleep Center and $50,000 toward Driscoll Children’s Hospital Rio Grande Valley.
