Altrusa is an international non-profit organization making our local communities better through leadership, partnership, and service.
Our club offers an opportunity to make a real difference in Central Florida. We undertake a variety of service, literacy, fundraising and international projects each year.
We are seeking new volunteers to join our organization and make a difference. Our members are from varying occupations and lifestyles, all sharing an interest in community service and enjoying the friendship, fun and satisfaction that comes from working together for the benefit of others.
Make A Difference Day! The Orlando-Winter Park Club decided to conduct another school drive aimed at donating school supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the schools. Supplies and cash were divided between Tools 4 Seminole Schools and A Gift for Teaching that operate free stores for teachers in Seminole and Orange Counties respectively. Also, the Club assisted the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County (ELCOC) to assemble literacy materials for two of their literacy programs. #community

Also, we have two (2) International Projects: Days for Girls and Support Our Soldiers with a focus on Homeless Veterans, which the Club supports as well. #kindness
In September 2019, the Club purchased over 90 Luci Lights (solar lights) which were used to support the set-up of a Tent City in Marsh Harbor. Marsh Harbor was one of the hardest-hit areas within the Bahamas. The Marsh Harbor Tent City provided people with a tent, a bed, a shower, a sleeping blanket, and Luci Light.
