As part of our Live Local, Give Local community giving campaign this holiday season, WBNA is collecting new and unwrapped toys for children ages 18 months to 13 years of age in support of West End Community Center's annual toy drive. Thank you for considering those in need in our community as you plan your holiday giving.
All are welcome to our 10th Annual West Side Caroling event! Meet up at Loie Fuller's from 5-6pm for snacks & socializing, then head out at 6pm sharp to bring holiday cheer to the neighborhood with some special stops along the way.
Review of a fantastic House Tour weekend and celebration that includes photos by Jack Ryan and Rebecca Atwood. Special thanks to all who made it possible and a great success.
It's a simple idea: Give where you live. And this year, WBNA makes it simple to do, by organizing three local giving opportunities that promise a positive impact in neighbors' lives this season.
WBNA's summer performance series (July 20 & 27, and August 3) features family-friendly fun with children's music artist Lindsay Meehan, K.C. Moaners, Trinity Rep's bilingual premiere of Romeo + Juliet, and Karma Rocket, plus lots of kids activities and more.
This review of our hugely successful Earth Day event will answer your burning questions about just how many mattresses were picked up on Cleanup Day as well as why the Bocce Build volunteers seemed so smart!
To plan high quality events that build the West Side’s sense of community and to raise funds to support the work of the WBNA
