Committed to service, the BHS Auxiliary and Junior Auxiliary donate more

separate program for those in high school, the Candy Stripers offer young
people opportunities to volunteer in a healthcare setting.

Candy Stripers (Junior Auxiliary)
Young men and women who are at least 14 years old and in ninth through
twelfth grade are given the opportunity to learn about the many different
departments in the hospital and obtain exposure to its internal workings.
The Candy Striper experience can also provide opportunities for setting
goals and planning for a future career.
One of the goals of the program is to help create self-worth and experience
personal satisfaction as these young men and women give their time and
talents in service to others.
