Woodfield Area Children's Organization (WACO)
- Non-Profit Organizations
The Woodfield Area Children’s Organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit serving disadvantaged children in the northwest and western suburbs. We are an all-volunteer charity and 97 cents of every dollar we raise goes to help the kids. Throughout the year we hold food, book, school supplies, coat and toy drives. Every winter WACO purchases more than 400 new coats for needy children. And every December we take more than 500 pre-schoolers Christmas shopping for themselves and their families. We hold several fundraisers each year including our "Steak" Your Claim meat raffle in the spring, Wingfest and Bags Tournament on the last Sunday in July and Toys for Tots Dinner in early December. We are always in the market for volunteers, sponsors and even someone willing to roll up their sleeves and spend the time and effort to be a board member. By the way, it’s whack-o, not way-ko.
