ChristianaCare Union Hospital Annual Fall Flower Sale Takes Place Friday, Sept. 15

The ChristianaCare Union Hospital Auxiliary will hold its annual Fall Flower Sale on Friday, Sept. 15, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., in front of the parking garage on the ChristianaCare Cecil County campus. Proceeds from the sale will benefit ongoing renovations of patient rooms and common areas of the 12-bed Behavioral Health unit at Union Hospital.

Visitors can stop by to purchase pumpkins, ornamental peppers, pots, baskets and an assortment of planters with flowers. Delicious apple cider donuts from nearby Milburn Orchards will also be available.

“We’ve been conducting the flower sale for 10 years, and it has grown each year,” said Donna Miles, president of the Hospital Auxiliary. “This annual event is a great way for people in our community to support Union Hospital and the incredible work that our caregivers do every day to support the health of our community. Thank you to everyone who has helped to make this an outstanding event. Let’s make this year’s the best one yet!”

In addition to the Fall Flower Sale, the Hospital Auxiliary’s 54 members raise funds in other ways and provide volunteer services to patients, families and staff of Union Hospital. Since 2009, the Auxilians have raised over $2 million. The Auxilians also operate the hospital gift shop, the Good As New Shop (a thrift store nearby) and the hospital’s vending machines.
