Altrusa of Montrose recognized for top International projects

Altrusa International of Montrose CO received 1st place recognition at the recent District Ten Conference for our multiple International projects. The local club provided sports equipment to a school in Tibet and traditional Sherpa costumes for cultural awareness in Nepal; made micro-loans to 81 entrepreneurs in 13 countries; funded medical treatment to cure intestinal worms in children in Tanzania; helped fund commemorative wind chimes for veterans of foreign wars through the local Wounded Warrior organization; and donated relief funds to Altrusa International Foundation following the Philippines typhoon.

As the top club in District Ten for this category, our projects will be judged at the next International Convention in 2015 against entries from the other Districts. Our local Foundation received a monetary award of $100 from Altrusa International Foundation to use toward our international projects in the future.
