Altrusa Club of Muncie, Indiana - Information

Mission Statement

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

Service Projects

  • Head Start Book Project – All children in the Delaware County Head Start Program receive books annually from the Altrusa Club of Muncie.  Altrusans visit each classroom, read the story to the children and then present the classroom with a book for each child.
  • Winter Wonderland – A project in partnership with the Muncie Children’s Museum to provide a themed space for families to enjoy.  Families come and listen to the story The Night Before Christmas read by an Altrusan and then receive a copy of the book. 
  • 4th Grade Essay Contest - Fourth grade students throughout Delaware County are invited to write an essay on "Why I Must Know How to Read". Essays are judged and winners receive a certificate at the Altrusa luncheon. Over 800 students from public, private and home schools participate.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Fundraising

    The Altrusa Club of Muncie organizes two large fundraisers each year.  The Altrusa Style Show raises more than $15,000 to support service projects in our community.  Individuals, organizations, and businesses purchase tickets to attend the event and local stores provide a runway show of fall fashions.  Additionally, local businesses sponsor the event through cash donations and in-kind service and product donations.  Each summer, the club organizes and hosts an auction to raise additional funds for service project work.  Members are encouraged to invite family, friends and potential new Altrusans.  More than $4000 is raised with this event.
