Club Service Projects

Our service projects reflect the Altrusa motto of "Leading to a Better Community". The focus of the Lawrence club is to improve literacy in our community so that individuals may contribute to the community to the best of their ability.


Projects meet a wide variety of needs including those which impact women and children. Our 2011-2012 projects are listed below and detailed later in this section.
