Charity Guild of Catholic Women operates a consignment shop with merchandise ranging from men, women, and children’s apparel to antiques and toys. The large furniture department features Oriental rugs, sofas, dining and bedroom suites, and accessories. Art for every taste and décor, books for every age reader, and designer handbags are other offerings.
Charity Guild Shop is the main source of income to fund the organization’s philanthropic activities. Each year Charity Guild awards grants, without regard to race or creed, to nonprofit agencies that provide services to thousands of disadvantaged children in the greater Houston area. The all-volunteer staff keeps expenses low, allowing the Guild to allocate generous sums to these agencies.
This organization of over 500 women has a mission rooted in performing works of mercy: giving food and drink to the needy, sheltering the homeless, comforting the afflicted, praying for others. A passion for helping children and sharing the Catholic faith cement the Guild’s dedication to this mission.
