CARMEL, N.Y. - The Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary presented a major gift this month.

Auxiliary Co-President Peg Lindblom delivered a $25,000 check to hospital President James Caldas during the group’s annual luncheon held Nov. 12, at Primavera in Croton Falls. The contribution is the third installment of a $125,000, one-year pledge the auxiliary made in 2015 to support the hospital’s Emergency Department.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you, “Caldas said. “You make a difference for the better of our care.”

Last year, the auxiliary completed a $150,000 pledge, also for the Emergency Department.

The donations come from money raised through the service of volunteers in the hospital gift shop and two off-site thrift shops, including the Eagle Eye in Brewster and Eagle Eye Too in Mahopac.

The auxiliary was formed in 1963 and has made more than $7 million in pledge payments since its inception.
