The St. Jerome Guild, Inc., a voluntary, non-profit organization, has served the healthcare community for decades and celebrated its centennial a few years ago. The group continues to be an active organization donating vital equipment to UMMC. . The Guild’s 2020 Hometown Heroes Star initiative honoring all UMMC employees for their efforts during the height of the pandemic raised $ 3,000. These funds contributed to the purchase of $ 7,000 by the Guild of an urgently needed freezer to store Covid vaccines!
For decades, the Guild has offered UMMC employees pursuing educational careers our annual health professional scholarships. Children who visit the Jérôme Emergency Care Center are comforted by stuffed animals. Cancer patients are given treatment bags containing personal items. The Guild sponsors the annual Center Jerome Employee Appreciation Day to thank employees for their efforts in service to the community. Guild members give thousands of volunteer hours working at the store and for UMMC events, including the teddy bear clinic. The Guild has set up a satellite gift shop at the UMMC kiosk on North Street, open at various times, offering our inventory of household items, gift items and clothing.
The hours of operation of the St. Jerome Gift Shop vary and Monday through Friday 9 am to 3 pm and Saturdays from
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Managed and operated by Guild volunteers only. New members are welcome to join the Guild throughout the year and a membership tea is held in September.
