AGM 2019 – Bring Your Spare Change for our Collection!

Let us help you declutter your purses and pockets with our annual AGM coin collection!

Every year we ask members attending the Annual Meeting to bring along their excess change for our collection for Frauen helfen Frauen.

Check your pockets, your wallets and your junk drawers and bring all those annoying and useless little one and two cent coins (and higher!) with you to the AGM and help us make a difference for the ladies at the Frauenhaus.

AGM 2018 – Bring Your Spare Change for our Collection!

change jar

Every year at our AGM, we do a little something to collect money to add to the current year’s Frauen helfen Frauen fundraising efforts.

Let us help you declutter your coin purses and pockets – we are happy to take all of your extra euro coins off your hands! After a successful coin collection last year, we will be doing it again at this AGM. Our Treasurer, Dorothee Klein, will bring an empty bucket for you to dump them in and take them to the bank to sort and donate.

Check your pockets, your wallets and your junk drawers and bring all those annoying and useless little one and two cent coins (and higher!) with you to the AGM and help us make a difference for the ladies at the Frauenhaus.
