AWOG Community Service

Community service is the core of what AWOG is about.  Through our community services committee, AWOG organizes various volunteer activities and educational events throughout the year.

We are the proud organizers of the city’s longest running charity Christmas fair.  The group spends months to prepare for an American themed “Christmas Bazaar” which is highly attended and known for its kids activities, food stalls, crafts and grand prizes. Proceeds go towards various non-profit organizations throughout Greece.
