The Auxiliary's Projects and Activities

The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) supports the Hospitals and community of NorthShore not only through their fundraising events, but also through various service projects.

Diapers in December

  2016 Diapers in December

Each December, The Auxiliary hosts a diaper drive to benefit NorthShore's Perinatal Family Support Center. Additional drives are held throughout the year. In 2017, The Auxiliary collected more than 10,000 diapers, which were distributed to local families in need through the Center.

The Perinatal Family Support Center provides a wide array of services to women and their families who experience challenges related to pregnancy, birth, prematurity and perinatal loss. The Center also provides resources for over 1,800 underserved families annually and all services are provided free of charge.

Nursing Scholarships

2018 Scholarship Winners

The Auxiliary's 2018 Nursing Scholarship award winners & presenters.


Every Spring, The Auxiliary offers $5,000 college scholarships to high school seniors in our core service area who plan to pursue an education in the field of nursing. This year, The Auxiliary provided five $5,000 scholarships to well deserving high school seniors, thanks in part to the generosity of underwriters Whitehall of Deerfield and Amita and Janardan Khandekar,MD. The current nursing shortage has been strongly documented, both nationally and regionally. Since NorthShore is committed to the future of healthcare, Auxiliary members feel that these scholarships are a well-directed effort.  

Congratulations to the 2018 Nursing Scholarship Winners Carlo D'Andre Castellanos, Emma Fraterrigo, Megan Patterson, Hannah Xu, and Rena You.
