OVHA

Quality, Compassionate Healthcare

Our volunteers generously share their gift of time and make positive contributions to their community

Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association (OHVA)

The Oakville Volunteer Auxiliary (OHVA) was founded in 1949 after a group of Oakville residents raised over $125,000 for the construction of a new hospital after WWII. It all began with 100 members. Since then, our association has gained a rich history of over 64 years and has grown to be more than 1000 people strong.

The OHVA is a self-managed organization which supports the delivery of quality patient care through volunteer engagement and fundraising at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

Support the Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association

Members of the Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association not only donate their time at the hospital, they also actively fundraise to help Halton Healthcare Services purchase vital medical equipment for the hospital.

How We Raise Money For The Hospital

The Tuck Wagon–The Tuck Wagon offers a wide array of items from the Gift Shop and operates throughout the inpatient floors. The Tuck Wagon conveniently offers sundry items, snacks and beverages for purchase by patients and visitors of the hospital.

If you happen to see this wagon circulating your floor while you are here, you can enjoy the convenience of having all these items brought to you, while donating to the hospital at the same time. It's a win-win situation!

BINGO-OHVA volunteers are Ambassadors at the Mayfair Bingo Hall on alternate Wednesday afternoons. Having recently switched to electronic Bingo, all proceeds from this venture go back to our hospital.

H.E.L.P.P. Lottery–The Hospital Equipment Lottery Project for People costs $.50 / ticket and you can win up to $100!

Tickets are on sale weekdays outside the OHVA Gift Shop. You must be 18 years old to play & all tickets must be opened and redeemed at the Gift Shop.

OHVA 50/50 Weekly Raffle–The OHVA holds various raffles and events throughout the year including a 50/50 draw lottery for Halton Healthcare staff and volunteers. Fifty per cent of proceeds go to the winner and 50% goes back to the hospital.

Vendor Program–The OHVA runs a very successful Vendor Program where they invite vendors to set up their unique products and gifts along the main area of the hospital for patients, visitors and staff to purchase. All net proceeds are donated to our hospital towards much-needed equipment and services.

Gift Shop–The Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association’s Gift Shop has a long legacy within the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. Your purchase is more than a gift; you are generously contributing to what makes OTMH one of the greatest community hospitals that it is today.
