Service Projects

Helping people enjoy travels on Amtrak was the goal of providing a bookcase to store books to share.  Our thanks to Terry Tulin, husband of an Altrusan,  for constructing the bookcase that was donated to the newly remodeled Amtrak Station.  Pictured with Terry is Fran Moore, Altrusa President.


We work with the Galesburg Alternative School in a variety of ways.  Several students and faculty attended our meeting on how to do an effective interview.  Jason Spring, Principal of GHS North is pictured with some students.

Some of the activities we did with students at GHSN . which is an alternative high school for credit recovery.  Several of our members mentor there and we all were involved in the "extra" projects pictures.....making Christmas decorations for their rooms and learning how to prepare eggs several ways.  Most of these students have VERY minimal guidance at home and are hungry for someone to care about them

Altrusa International Club of Galesburg, Illinois members Semenya McCord, Pat Lansing and Nancy Martin were among 15 Altrusans  collecting for the Safe Harbor Family Crisis Center Food Drive at the local Hy-Vee Food Store.  Thanks to the generosity of our community we had a very successful day providing food for those families served by Safe Harbor.
