Monetary Support

The AWCB always appreciates monetary donations to support our HOPE program.


HEARTS FOR HOPE

We gather together each month in the Waterloo area to make heart shaped pillows that we donate to breast cancer patients at local hospitals.  The pillow is designed to be placed under the arm to ease pain and tension, as well as provide emotional support to the patients who are always uplifted to receive our pillows which are made with love.  

No sewing skills are needed, please join this delightful group of ladies and help us to support more breast cancer patients!  Find out how you can be involved

ANGEL TREE

Each year for St. Niklas Day, the AWCB raises funds, coordinates, collects, and distributes gifts for children in need in the Brussels area with collaboration from local charities.  Please note that this program is for people from all religious backgrounds.   This is a very large program and we are always in need of volunteers so please get in touch at hope@awcb.org to donate your time for this wonderful program.  For more information on Angel Tree see here:  https://www.awcb.org/sys/website/?pageId=1855861


Who the AWCB Supports

Project Lina  Named after long-time AWCB member Nancy Evans' daughter, Lina.  When Lina passed away suddenly, Nancy partnered with Lina's previous employer and a local charity, Nativitas, to sponsor summer activities for children in need in Brussels.  The children are encouraged to participate in activities that they would normally not have the opportunity to try: circus, dance, adventure, science and nature as well as many sports. Thanks to Project Lina, these children can discover new horizons.
