Altrusans help raise funds for Montrose Medical Mission

Other volunteers at the Altrusa Aid Station were Betty Lundgren, Carolyn Otero, Nic Hotsenpiller, and Charlie Winger.

On Sunday, May 16, several Altrusa members (and a spouse and a son) greeted bike riders as they participated in Mission to Ride, handing out fruit and snacks, refilling water bottles, and offering encouragement. The riders were raising funds for Montrose Medical Mission which offers free medical care once per week to uninsured and underinsured members of our community.  The medical personnel work without pay, but funds are needed for medicine, lab tests, and equipment.

Altrusa has also provided financial support to the Medical Mission with a grant of $1,000 per year for 3 years beginning in our 2008-2009 fiscal year.
