Help us by donating

Without the donations of generous individuals and businesses, none of this can be done. Your financial support provides more than 20 percent of our budget, and without it we would not be able to fulfill our commitments.

A Helping Hand

Although we are small, WACO makes a significant contribution to the advancement of the children we serve. We are known for our annual Christmas program where we take more the 500 preschoolers shopping for themselves and their families. 



Become a volunteer

If you are looking to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children living in the northwest and western suburbs, there are a number of opportunities to get involved with WACO. The children we work with are all living at or below poverty level.


Welcome to WACO

Looking to Volunteer?

Volunteers are the lifeblood of WACO. Without your help, we simply cannot do all the things we do each year. At WACO, we are all volunteers. We do not have any paid positions. From the president on down, we all help whenever and wherever we can. Whether it be as a committee member or as a volunteer on the day of an event, we hope you will consider joining us.
