The Eastern Lewis County Hospital Foundation is a volunteer-based organization that functions with the sole purpose of supporting Morton General Hospital and its employees. Made up of community members throughout the hospital district, the members strive to promote the hospital within the community and expand the support from the communities to the hospital.
The 2012 dinner auction's theme was "Some Beach, Somewhere." Our bartenders, Bill and Debbie Brehmeyer won the costume contest.
The Foundation holds fundraisers throughout the year and then turns the proceeds into scholarships for hospital employees and equipment for the hospital. The largest fundraiser is the annual dinner auction on the first Saturday of October at the Morton Lions Hall. The event is filled with laughter and friendship and offers a wide variety of both silent and verbal auction items.

We also boast of an annual golf tournament on the fourth Saturday of July at the Ironwood Green Golf Course in Glenoma and a Ladies Brunch in April.
We welcome participation from the community. For more information, contact Executive Director Diane Evans by phone at 360-496-3610 or email.
In addition to participating in our annual fund-raising events, you can also contribute by monetary or real-property donations. We accept donations for both our general fund and the Gladys Howlett Scholarship Fund, which provides funding to enable Morton General Hospital and Randle Clinic employees to further their education. Donations given in memory of loved ones who have passed away also provide for the memorialized individual to be included on the memorial wall in the hospital.
Donations can be dropped off at the hospital, mailed to P.O. Box 1132, Morton, WA 98356 or given by credit card via Pay Pal using the button below.
