THE GUILD GIVES BACK
Each year, the Women’s Guild organizes fundraisers and also makes monetary gifts to a variety of nonprofit organizations. Although COVID-19 dramatically limited our ability to hold in person events this past year, we raised funds for Blessings in a Backpack as part of a reimagined Advent Candlelight program and for Maryville Crisis Nursery in connection with our Spring Luncheon. Overall, we raised and donated over $20,000 to charities supporting women and children.

Thank you to all the women of the Parish who help the Guild continue this annual tradition of giving back by joining Bridge, becoming a Guild member, attending Guild sponsored events, and donating to Guild fundraisers. Together, we are making a real difference in the lives of others.
This year at the Guild, we will continue to donate our combined gifts of monetary donations and volunteered time to non-profit organizations / programs focused on “WOMEN & CHILDREN IN NEED”.
