The purpose of Quilters' Guild of East Texas is to preserve the heritage of quilting, to assist members in developing a high quality of excellence in quilting, to be a source of information and inspiration, and to provide a gathering of people with a common interest.
Guild members donate not only financially to the community but donate numerous hours through- out the year by the education of quiltmaking or by giving home- made goodies.
Christian Women’s Job Corps of Tyler, Inc. equips women with job skills and life skills in a Christ-centered environment and exists to assist women in gaining skills for life and employment through job training and education while providing missions opportunities in Tyler and east Texas area.
St Paul’s Children’s Foundation
Founded in 1995 by ladies of St. Paul’s Methodist Church. Supporters encompass the city of Tyler.
The Foundation began as an outreach with “Wonderful Wednesday” – an after school program that offered Bible studies, songs, activities for kids. Needs soon became apparent for the primarily Hispanic neighborhood of East Richards. Soon a Food Pantry, a Clothing Closet, a Pediatric Clinic, and a Dental Clinic evolved. Head Start screenings, Healthy Kids- Healthy Families are two of their community programs. Santa’s Workshop, Andrews Park, and Khakis for Kids are also part of their program.
It is a 501c(3) organization.
The Quilters' Guild of East Texas will generally focus its donation on women's and children's issues and needs. The Executive Board receives proposal forms from Guild members and determines the allocation of funds to those charities by being cognizant of geographical diversity.
