Community Projects

Although we do enjoy getting together, BWC is primarily a service organization, NOT a social club.   Club members work together and with other organizations in Alamance County, North Carolina, and throughout the nation to make our communities a better place.   We have a special interest in the well-being of children, who are our future, and all those who are least able to help themselves.  

The club is organized into six Community Service Program areas, representing areas of focus in the community.   Some of the community groups we support in those areas are listed below.   Note that links will open in a separate window.
