Ongoing Community Volunteering Activities
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 chaired by Silvia Malo – 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. Contact: PR@awcberlin.org
If you speak some German, you can also look in www.berliner-woche.de — the weekly local newspaper distributed free of charge throughout Berlin. There are various versions of the paper depending on the neighborhood you live in, but there are a number of general Berlin stories and advertisements shared by all. Go to the website, click on “E Paper” at the top, then enter your zip code (Postleitzahl) to get to the issue for your neighborhood. You can either “Read” it or you can download a PDF. At the end of each issue (usually on the second to last or third to last page), you can find information about volunteer opportunities. It’s called “Freiwillige gesucht.”
