Ongoing Community Volunteering Activities

currently suspended due to COVID-19 regulations

Every quarter, the AWC spends one Thursday evening cooking for the families of the Ronald McDonald House in Berlin-Wedding. The AWC RMDH team – currently comprised of Silvia Malo and Dawna Grand – designs a menu following a particular theme for the evening, shops for the necessary groceries, and organizes a team of AWC members who have volunteered to cook.  Everyone comes together on Thursday evening to collectively cook the recipes from start to finish on the premises of the RMDH.
