Literacy and Returning Woman Scholarship
Altrusa International of Marianna recently donates $ 2500 annually to the Chipola College Foundation for the club’s scholarship awards - one to a female student from Jackson County who is returning to Chipola in an effort to secure advancements in her chosen career, and the other in a literacy-related field of study. The scholarship can be applied toward tuition, books, and items required for coursework. These scholarships are made possible through the fundraising projects of the Altrusa Club that include an annual golf tournament and biannual yard sales. Nursing Home
For Altrusa's Make A Difference Day club members collected and delivered toiletries for the residents at the local Nursing Pavilion. Coats for Kids
During the winter months school counselors identify local students with inadequate winter coats. Altrusa members then collect coats through local businesses and private donations to fill the students’ needs. Members deliver the coats to the school as requested.
