Dr. Samuel G. Brooks Guild
About our Guild
The Dr. Samuel G. Brooks Guild of Anacortes, WA. was founded in 1939 by local women who wished to help children in need of medical care. Our guild is a proud member of Seattle Children's Guild Association, a non-profit organization with almost 500 guilds and 7,000 members. It is the largest all-volunteer fundraising network for any hospital in the nation.
Our guild's mission is to help Seattle Children's fulfill its promise that all children in our region receive world-class healthcare regardless of a family's ability to pay. In 2014, Seattle Children's provided care for 2,353 children from Skagit County. Over $3.1M was Uncompensated Care. The major fundraising project for our guild is the
Annual Home and Boat Tour. Other fundraising projects include the annual Seattle Children's Calendar drive, the Purchase a Miracle program, broom sales, Burl Ives' CD's, various handicrafts, and a raffle during the Home and Boat Tour. Social activities include the annual Seattle Children's Guild Association meeting, the annual Skagit County Guilds meeting, summer picnic, Christmas party, and special guest speakers.
We are a dedicated group that works hard to support Seattle Children's mission. Our monthly lunchtime meeting is the third Thursday from 11:30 a.m. until approximately 1:30 p.m., which is held at the United Methodist Church, 2201 H Avenue, Anacortes. A catered lunch ($10) is available prior to our meeting at 12:30. Guests are always welcome!
