Approximately 100 volunteers donate their time each year, amounting to 28,000 hours in volunteer service. Individuals such as Nancy Martinez and Annemarie Becker contributed 1,000 hours and 900 hours respectively.
Monies donated are the proceeds from the MRMC gift shop staffed by Auxiliary members. In order to generate more sales, the gift shop holds several bake sales, jewelry sales, book fairs, and other fundraisers throughout the year.
