African American Women Council for Community Outreach
The African American Women Council for Community (AAWCCO) was established in 1997 with the primary purpose of supporting underprivileged school age children with school uniforms and supplies, scholarships for graduating seniors, and toys at Christmas time. The majority of children that we support are living at poverty status. Some children are living in homeless shelters or are being raised by their grandmother. Therefore, we are helping children who would otherwise not have school uniforms/supplies or toys at Christmas time. The unfortunate issue that we have experienced is receiving requests from schools for more children than we can support.
