Show Your Support

The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary in Tyler, Texas was formed in 1986. The Auxiliary works as an extension of The Salvation Army Advisory Board. Its purpose is to support the work of the local Salvation Army and to strengthen the hands of those who have dedicated their lives to this cause. The Auxiliary functions as a fundraising and volunteer service group for the programs of The Salvation Army. The purpose of the Auxiliary is to raise public awareness of The Salvation Army, to facilitate services to the needy, and to strengthen the financial base of the local Salvation Army. Membership is open to all women in the community. Members are encouraged to participate and support the programs of The Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary of Tyler, Texas

At over 400 members strong, The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary (SAWA) of Tyler is certainly a force with which to be reckoned and makes it one of the largest in the country. SAWA members are exceptional women in the community, who by their influence or activity can further the work of the Army. Each woman is encouraged to volunteer in one or more programs offered by The Tyler Salvation Army or to serve on a committee which interests them. In this way, the individual and unique talents of each woman can be used to the fullest.

Since 1986, SAWA has been a critical part of what keeps this Army “doing the most good” for the Tyler and Smith County communities. This force completely and independently organizes, promotes, and runs the Angel Tree, making the dream of a merry Christmas a reality for many underprivileged families who would otherwise be unable to provide Christmas gifts for their children. From organizing fundraisers to teaching music classes, SAWA is a force of good that cannot be stopped. Growing from a group of 22 women in 1986 to a powerhouse of over 400 members this year, this is a group every woman should consider joining.

Members recieve:

  • Invitations to attend yearly fund-raising events
  • A variety of volunteer opportunities to help the needy in our community
  • The opportunity to work with individuals who have dedicated their lives to the service of others
  • A yearly directory which includes membership, history, and upcoming events
  • Quarterly newsletters
  • Blessings for contributing to the work of the most revered charitable Christian organization in the world

We understand that it can be difficult to fit another activity into your schedule, but your yearly membership donation alone helps the Auxiliary to accomplish its purpose by helping to strengthen the financial base of The Salvation Army.
