Scholarships: We contribute to the National AMBUCS Scholarship Fund in addition to providing our own scholarships to Tyler students every year.
AmTrykes: AmTrykes are a national symbol for the AMBUCS organization. We have donated several of these special tricycles to needy children since the creation of the Tyler, TX AMBUCS Chapter.. A qualification process takes place for the child and as long as the AmTryke will benefit him or her we?ll give it to them at no charge. What a great feeling it is to see that child?s smile and how the self-esteem level rises since now they have a bike like everyone else. When they ride they are performing therapy on themselves.
