Pleasanton, CA — The ValleyCare Medical Center Gift Shop is set to reopen Monday, September 17, at 9am after the completion of a renovation giving it a fresh, new look and a better layout. The location remains the same in the lobby of ValleyCare Medical Center, 5555 W. Las Positas Blvd, Pleasanton.
According to ValleyCare Auxilian and Gift Shop Director Vicky Hambrick, the shop is opening with all new merchandise and will be stocked for fall and Halloween. “I think it’s important people know about the ValleyCare Auxiliary Gift Shop as the place to find special and unique items,” says Hambrick. “At the same time, they are supporting the community by supporting ValleyCare.”
All monies raised in the shop go right back to the hospital for new equipment and technology, expansion projects, new services and scholarships the Auxiliary awards every spring to local high school seniors planning a career in the medical field.
The Gift Shop is staffed and operated by volunteers of the ValleyCare Auxiliary and is just one of the many areas the community can volunteer through the Auxiliary. Hambrick notes that new volunteers are always welcome and needed both in the Gift Shop and throughout the health system in Livermore and Pleasanton. “If you’re newly retired or an empty nester looking for something wonderful to do, try the ValleyCare Auxiliary. There are many opportunities available to use your talents and always one to fit your schedule,” she says.
The Auxliliary Gift Shop is open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering at the Gift Shop or at either the Livermore or Pleasanton ValleyCare campuses, please contact the ValleyCare Auxiliary Information Line at 925.734.3368.
