Interested in joining a grassroots civic chapter called AMBUCS? Our local
chapter here in TYLER is known as the TYLER AREA AMBUCS and it's making a
major impact in the lives of children and their families within our
AMBUCS is dedicated to helping people and their families as they face the
obstacles that come with physical disabilities. We do that in several ways:
1) AMTRYKES - Modified tricycles which create mobility for those who cannot
ride a conventional bike. Not only do these bikes allow for the joy of
riding a bike, they
also aid with physical therapy for their riders. Our chapter provides Trykes to
children in need in the East Texas area.
2) Wheel Chair Ramps - Our chapter members build twelve ramps per year
throughout the community. We not only provide the labor, but we can also
with purchasing the materials.
3) Scholarship Programs – Our chapter is looking to partner with Tyler
College and the upcoming Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and
Therapy Assistant programs to grant annual scholarships to local students
are entering therapy fields.
4) Community Service – Our chapter volunteers several hours of community
service each year. Through our efforts, we are able to raise funds and
awareness to support our mission. Examples are serving with the East Texas
Food Bank, serving the homeless at Church Under a Bridge, and more!
Our membership covers a wide range of professions throughout the community,
including: Bankers, Therapists, Professors, Financial Advisors, and
Business Owners. The AMBUCS motto of “Shoulders Together” is truly evident
when watching our diverse membership come together to help those in need.
AMBUCS is the Fun Way to Serve! We have social events to allow our members
mingle and enjoy the latest chapter accomplishments. Members serve on
committees and have an impact on how the chapter operates.
The TYLER AREA AMBUCS meet the FIRST and THIRD Tuesday of each month at
noon with meetings usually
lasting up to one hour. We enjoy a great meal and have a speaker once a
month that informs the group about their local business, organization, or
A full membership in the chapter is $30 per month, which can be paid monthly
or quarterly, and includes your meal each meeting. Our chapter provides its
membership with the opportunity to help those in need, network with other
members, and Have Fun!
I can assure you that joining AMBUCS is a decision you will not regret.
Please feel free to attend a meeting, as our guest, to gain a better
understanding of our chapter and our benefit on the community. There is no
cost to visit and you would be more than welcomed at a meeting.
