A Message from Our Executive Director
At the Tutwiler Community Education Center, we strengthen and enrich the lives of children and families by developing programs to address the needs of our community.
While our mission remains the same, the world has changed more than any of us could have predicted. During the pandemic, we provided 40,000 meals to our community, located in a food desert. We provided meals for people who
could not drive 15 miles to the nearest grocery store. We endured floodwaters that damaged our 29-year-old building.
I hope you will join me in making a gift of personal significance this year. Together, we are someone’s healthy meal. We are a community’s path to living an enriched life. Our gifts create opportunities and ensure that our friends and neighbors get through even the darkest times.
Melanie Powell, Executive Director at the Tutwiler Community Education Center
