DWCA Improvements for the 2012-2013 School Year

This past Summer of 2012 we have completed the second phase of the program. The entire schoolyard was repaired and resealed and three new NBA caliber basketball goals were installed. Read more...
Volunteer Group from Texas Comes to the Aid of DWCA
This summer a volunteer group of forty young people from Good Shepherd Catholic Community in Colleyville, Texas made a one-week mission trip to New York City. In addition to helping out at local hospice and community center, the volunteers found time to visit DWCA to lend a hand. There was plenty of back braking work to go around clearing out the downstairs and attic storage rooms in preparation for construction on the new Art Room and Nursery. The volunteers jumped right in, moved boxes, furniture and even an old Coke machine ( which they cleaned up “good as new”.) The only payment they expected was a sumptuous lunch of New York pizza – which DWCA volunteers were happy to provide. It was very refreshing to see these young people put their faith into action and actually be grateful for the chance to help.
Perhaps we can repay them one day with a mission trip to Texas, but only if Texas BBQ is on the lunch menu.
