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 who donate time and sewing talents toward making a difference in the lives of others.

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 Sundresses: The Northwest NG makes sundresses for AVIVA. These brightly colored and embellished garments are lovingly crafted to bring joy to a little girl's heart.
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.

Chemo Caps:

The AZ Oncology Foundation and the American Cancer Society offer a Chemo Cap (or turban) lending program. Chemotherapy patients who have lost their hair get 1 wig and 2 caps per year. With an ongoing need for more than 1,000 caps annually, the ASG Chapter supports the cause. On May 15 Tucson Chapter members teamed with the Mt. Lemmon Women's Club to make over 150 Chemo caps. Thanks ladies! .

Outstanding Community Service Volunteers

Three cheers for the Sierra Vista Neighborhood Group! The members are participating in Heads at Ease a program to provide pillowcases for those serving in the Navy. These special pillowcases will let our sailors know they are remembered.
