Back to School Program
AWCB dedicated volunteer Julie Kmet spearheaded our Back to School Supply Drive again this year, which is in support of NASCI vzw, a service center for underprivileged children, women, and families of Brussels. Our AWCB membership has been extremely generous as usual and donated 2 overflowing carloads filled with backpacks, folders, school supplies, hygiene materials, clothes, baby strollers, sporting goods, and toys. All items were well received by the smiling Nasci team and immediately put into piles for the designated families.
Many thanks to all the members who donated to this worthwhile cause!
We were able to fill 10 pallets of supplies and supported over 92 families with the items donated by AWCB members! We are always impressed by the generosity of AWCB members and sincerely thank you for everything you've done! Special thanks from the board also to our member Michelle Angelone who mobilized our effort, as well as members Nicole Wilder, Lindsay Clark and Julie Kmet who are all collecting items at their homes, which are then dropped off each week at the help centers - you ladies are amazing and we sincerely appreciate your big hearts!
This year the AWCB made a very significant donation to Lina’s Project, which sponsors summer activities for under-priviledged children here in Brussels. Thanks to Lorraine DeBock’s gracious efforts, a raffle was organized during the 4th of July picnic. A special thanks to Kristen and her husband for managing the raffle which was a great success, and to those who donated prizes.
Close to 700€ was raised along with a few additional donations bringing the grand total to about 1150€. Together, as a club, we made a big difference in these children’s lives, covering about 25% of the total cost of the program this year. Many thanks to all who participated, donating financially and also giving of their time and efforts to make this a success!
