Hospital Auxiliary Donations

As President of the KVHD Auxiliary, I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to the residents of our valley for all your generous donations and patronage of our store. Your donations benefit our local hospital. Without your support we would not be able to purchase the much needed equipment allowing us to remain competitive with other hospitals in Kern County.

I want to remind everyone that we accept donations and adhere to a strict policy guideline. We are unable to accept any large appliance or televisions. Clothes need to be clean and free from holes and packed neatly in bags or boxes, no bulk. Please keep in mind most of our volunteers are seniors and we just don’t have the strength to lift heavy items. We are unable to launder clothes that are dirty or iron items that are extremely wrinkled.

Hours of Operation:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. (donations accepted 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.)
Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Closed Sunday and Wednesday

We lock our doors promptly at 2:30. Special arrangements can be made in advance if you are unable to drop off your donation during those times.

Again, I would request you drop off your donations during our hours posted above. Or, if you are unable to, please contact myself or one of the day leaders to arrange a more convenient time. Please don’t leave any donations while we are closed. With the changing demographics in our valley, anything left while we are closed does not make it into the thrift store.

In closing, I wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous New Year and look forward to the communities support in 2019.

Thank You
Cindi Rupert
President, KVHD Auxiliary


Another American Family

Thank you for helping to sell my book Another American Family.

Book 2 is now available at barnesandnoble.com. It chronicles my great-great-grandparents.

I appreciate your spreading the word.
