|WAYS TO SERVE|
CWU maintains the Lucille Mayberry Memorial Sewing Rooms, initiated in 1948, which continues today with dedicated volunteers; each year we donate lap robes, pads, and quilts/comforters for adults and babies through local charities.
Volunteers are welcome.
The Sewing circle meets at Tarrytown United Methodist Church, 2601 Exposition Blvd.
Thursdays, 9-11 a.m. Contact Coordinator Peggy Maxwell, 338-0406
Volunteers also sew at other locations in churches.
Community Involvement and Global Outreach:
CWU Austin has maintained a unique relationship for many years with organizations that educate, feed and heal residents of a diverse community. With prayer and personal commitment, members seek to develop a better understanding of global needs and environmental concerns. We seek to build relationships with Christian women in other countries. We hope to gain a better understanding on global issues such as fair trade practices, equal wages and human rights for women and children. CWU members have provided many volunteer hours of service to local nonprofit organizations. Our members frequently serve as committee chairs and board members for organizations vital to the well being of the community. If you desire additional information on a specific project or organization, a partial list of contacts is provided for your convenience. Please contact a CWU Officer for phone numbers/emails of these representatives.
