Aid Association

Championing Anna Jaques Hospital since 1888

With close to 200 members, the Aid is comprised of energetic, dedicated individuals whose goal is to raise funds in support of its community hospital through signature events and programs. Since 1888, the Aid has made a tremendous difference and has provided millions of dollars for mission critical needs.

Great Chefs' Night

Thank you to all sponsors, participants, auction winners, and most importantly, the participating restaurants for making the 2021 Great Chefs’ Night Reimagined a huge success! Over 600 vouchers were sold, with 150 being donated to frontline workers at AJH. We look forward to your continued support next year! 

Tree of Light Remembrance

Thank you to everyone who supported the Aid Association's Tree of Light. While we could not gather this year for the ceremonious lighting of the tree, you can view all 575 names listed on the scroll here. The tree, located outside the hospital's Highland Avenue main entrance, will stay lit throughout the holiday season.

Tree of Light is a community-wide remembrance event organized by the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association. Individuals can purchase a light to shine on the AJH Remembrance Tree in honor of a loved one. All names are listed on a Tree of Light scroll which is displayed in the hospital lobby, on the AJH website, and included in an ad which runs in the Newburyport Daily News. For every light that shines from the tree, it shines in honor of someone special.
