Altrusa International, Inc. of Montrose celebrated receiving a $7,500 grant from the City of Montrose for the club’s Lifeline program which serves 104 local clients.

Lifeline helps those who have health and medical problems remain safely in their homes by providing a medical alert security system. The local Altrusa club has been operating the system for over 25 years.

Altrusa of Montrose also received a Wells Fargo grant and an Altrusa International Foundation Grant specifically for Lifeline, for a combined total of over $8,600.
