The Aspirus Ironwood Auxiliary proudly lights a pair of trees each holiday season with lights that can be purchased for those honored in memory of those we love (Tree of Love) or to celebrate the happy and special life events such as births, weddings, graduations, anniversaries or whatever you have to celebrate (Celebration Tree). The trees are lit in early December and light are $5/each. Lights for either tree can be purchased year round and forms for purchasing light can be picked up at the Aspirus Ironwood Auxiliary Gift Shop.

Our junior volunteer program offers excellent opportunities to learn about health-related careers and is an excellent experience for young adults. We also offer a number of ways junior volunteers (ages 14 to 18) can volunteer during the summer months, with a limited number continuing throughout the school year as part of their school’s contracting program.
The junior volunteers and contracting students assist the staff in nursing, social services, public relations, nutrition services, community wellness, radiology, physical therapy, material management, and the clinics.
