RIH Thrift Seller is owned and operated by the Afternoon Auxiliary to the Royal Inland Hospital.
The Auxiliary’s mission is to provide specialized patient care equipment for the Royal Inland Hospital, to act as public relations representatives and goodwill ambassadors for our hospital within the community, and to help to fill the widening gap between funding and necessary equipment purchases for our hospital. We are embarking on a five-year plan to raise $1,100,000 to buy equipment for the hospital’s new patient care tower and $500,000 for existing facilities equipment purchases. We are a registered society and registered charity.
