Penn Highlands Elk Auxiliary
The Penn Highlands Elk Auxiliary is a dedicated group of individuals that raises money to support the hospital. A large portion of the auxiliary’s funding comes from the money raised through the ReSale Shop. The ReSale Shop is open five days per week year round, and it features second hand clothes, furniture and other household items. The auxiliary also operates The Peppermint Stick, a gift shop on the Penn Highlands Elk St. Marys campus.
