VILLA SIENA AUXILIARY
The Villa Siena Auxiliary is dedicated to enriching the lives of all residents by addressing their spiritual, physical, social, and emotional needs. This is accomplished by visiting residents, hosting social events, and raising funds.
The Auxiliary was founded in the early spring of 1966 by community-minded women who wanted to give their time and talent to help others. The founding members formulated the basic policies and programs that have guided the Auxiliary through the years and benefited and enhanced the lives of untold residents.
The Auxiliary is composed of a Board of Directors. Comprised of elected officers and appointed members. Meetings are held each month, excluding July and August, on the second Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. at Villa Siena.
Membership is open to all persons regardless of race, color, or creed who are interested in volunteering their time and talent to help Villa Siena residents and who are willing to uphold the purpose and policies of the Auxiliary. Membership dues are $25 for adults, $10 for Villa Siena residents and Junior volunteers and are renewable each year in June.
The Auxiliary supports the mission and the values of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. The Director of Mission and Spiritual Services attend the monthly meetings, actively advises, supports, and participates in many auxiliary activities and programs.
