The Carleton Lodge Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds for the benefit of residents. This is done through (1) the operation of a Tuck Shop, including the purchase of supplies and gift items likely to be appealing and affordable to residents and the training and supervision of Tuck Shop volunteers; (2) gift basket raffles; (3) baked goods, crafts and garage sales. Funds are used to enhance the quality of life of residents: sponsoring outings, entertainment and special events and purchasing items to make the Home comfortable and attractive for residents. Some funds are also used to enhance the quality of care provided to residents. Do you enjoy crafting? Baking? Would you be interested in soliciting donations for our events? Would you enjoy working at our sales events? Perhaps you have fundraising experience and have ideas you would like to share with us. If any of these activities appeal to you, you would be most welcome to join our team.
