Welcome to the Altrusa Club of Troy Website!
Altrusa International, Inc. of Troy,
Ohio is a service club that is committed to community service, literacy
and fellowship for the benefit of the community and its members. We are
a not-for-profit organization under code section 501(C)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Service. Contributions to the club are tax deductible.
Our major service projects include:
Spelling Bee-The Spelling Bee,
known as the Bee For Literacy, is an annual
fund-raising event within the community. Area businesses and
organizations compete in a
fun-filled atmosphere for bragging rights. Attendance fees and a silent
auction augment corporate and individual sponsorships. Proceeds of the
Bee for Literacy are used
to support literacy programs in the area.
(started in 1973)-Mobile Meals is the Troy Altrusa Club’s longest
ongoing service project, begun in 1973. Mobile Meals is now recognized
as a United Fund Agency and is managed by Altrusa volunteers. The
program supplies hot meals to homebound Troy residents every Monday
through Friday, including holidays. Deliveries are made by paid drivers.
Programs-Altrusa International Inc. of Troy works to provide
volunteers to teachers in the Troy School system to assist with reading
programs. Once connected, the teachers and volunteers work together to
address the needs of students requiring additional reading attention.
Every child participating in the program receives a new book from the
club at the end of each school year. Proceeds from the Bee for Literacy fund this project.
Links, sponsored by Altrusa International Inc. of Troy, is a referral
program that connects people to literacy services. Access to local
literacy providers is provided on the web at
