Community Service

Tucson Chapter members contribute more than 25,000 sewing hours annually toward community outreach. Large sew-a-thons, smaller groups and individuals are all part of a network that donates time and sewing talents toward making a difference in the lives of others.
Future Community Service Projects
Fidget Quilts for Alzheimers & Dementia Patients

On July 11 members of the Northwest Neighborhood Group met to make fidget quilts. This project is dedicated to Jerre Murray, the recently deceased mother of one of our members who was championing this project. The project was given to her by a lady from Yuma whose church makes them. These therapy pieces will go to family members and friends suffering from Alzheimers or dementia.

Many items are made throughout the year to support AVIVA Child Protective Services, which provides for children in foster care. These children enter foster care with little or no possessions. Members spend many hours making clothing, bags, & Christmas stockings to help provide for them.

AVIVA Easter Baskets: On February 7 twelve members of the Eastside Day Neighborhood Group gathered to make Easter Baskets for children in foster care. Their efforts produced 50 of these adorable gifts .

AVIVA Christmas Stockings: Each year, Chapter member Carol Backus leads an outreach to make Christmas stockings for foster kids under the care of AVIVA. To learn more, click here.

AVIVA Totebags:

Every year members participate on AVIVA's Bag Day. Aviva needs over 4,000 bags of every size to store toiletries, blankets and other needed items for children in foster care.

Beanbags for Libraries:

Every September, the Westside Neighborhood Group makes piles of cloth beanbags filled with rice. They are given to libraries to provide hours of play during children's story time. For more info, click here.
