The McLean Auxiliary

The Mission and Purpose of the McLean Auxiliary

Since 1972, the McLean Auxiliary has provided life enhancement support to McLean residents, patients, families and staff.

The McLean Auxiliary is a group of volunteers dedicated to supporting the quality of life and wellness for McLean residents, patients and clients.  From the beautiful gift shop with something for everyone, to annual fundraisers, and numerous
activities with and for residents, the McLean Auxiliary is an integral part of the McLean family.  Anyone can join the Auxiliary – current and former employees, residents, families of residents, friends and neighbors.

The McLean Auxililary is financially supported by membership dues, fundraisers and the Gift Shop.  The Auxiliary awards grants annually to support residents' services and quality of life activities.  Grants are given for residents' special needs (such as haircuts, personal items, eyeglasses), therapeutic recreation music, craft and entertainment programs as well as equipment that enhances patient care.
