AWA periodically calls for volunteers for several of our Featured Organizations below. Look for announcements on our events calendar or our Facebook Page. We also hold our own AWA initiated Beach and Park Clean-ups as well as ad hoc events. We hope you will sign up for those as well.
Do you have a charity in mind that you think AWA should support ad-hoc? Email email@example.com to discuss.
Food from the Heart
FFTH is a non-profit voluntary food distribution program established in February 2003 after Singapore-based Austrian couple Henry and Christine Laimer read a report in "The Sunday Times" about bakeries discarding their unsold bread. Stirred, they then decided to channel surplus food from bakeries to those in need.
