Mission Statement

"To promote Community Service, with an emphasis on literacy and implement fund raising opportunities to provide resources for designated projects."

Club Theme

“Literacy Matters and Altrusa Makes a Difference”

Service Projects

Research and state studies show that the more books children have at home the better they do in school. By providing books to young children we give them a better chance to succeed in school and thus enable them to become productive citizens in our community.

Books for Headstart

Altrusans delivered 1,000 new books to Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF), the local Headstart Program. Every child in the program will receive a book they can take home to share with their family.

Elementary School Book Distributions

Altrusans visit Harney and Peter S. Ogden Elementary Schools and read to 1st and 2nd Grade students. Several classes are each visited three times a year. After a book is read aloud, the visit ends by allowing each child to choose a book of their own.

Community Library Support

Since 2005, Altrusa International of Clark County Foundation has given $40,000.00 in support of the construction of 4 new library branches.
