Altrusa is an international non-profit organization that strives to make our local communities better through leadership, partnership and service. Altrusa historically has been, and still is, a community service organization with a focus on literacy and other local needs.
Altrusa is a service organization. From October to May, we read to kindergarten classes and give away brand new FOREVER books to Greater Portland Kindergarten Students. They get to take these books home. Monthly dinners donated and prepared for the Ronald MacDonald House families. Spring and Fall we help out with gardening at the Barron Center.
Come to one of our meetings to find out about more of the service projects that we are involved with. Everyone is welcome to volunteer with us. Altrusa membership is not required. Other service activities include:
