CHARITIES

Every year the American International Women’s Club of Casablanca selects a few charitable organizations to provide support to. These organizations are non-profit charities that benefit the Moroccan community.  Over the course of the year, AIWCC will work with these organizations, provide volunteer services, organize drives and publicize their events to our membership and to the community.

Our charity team is continually raising funds to support these local organizations.  AIWCC holds a range of fundraising events every year.  Our biggest fundraising events are the Holiday Fair and Spring Fair. We invite vendors to sell their special items and our volunteer food committee always prepare international delicious food that would satisfy your cravings.

Also at our Spring Fair event, AIWCC celebrates these charitable organizations by inviting them to display, sell their products and publicize their charitable efforts.

We also hold Annual Garage Sale.  Your clean, sellable donations are always welcome. Contact us and we’re happy to help you pick them up.
