Altrusans provide humanitarian relief through multiple avenues

Altrusa International of Gainesville, Florida

Welcome to the Altrusa International of Gainesville website.  The Altrusa Club is comprised of women and men with diverse interests devoted to bettering our immediate and international communities. At our bimonthly luncheon meetings our programs consist of speakers on topics such as Asian Art Exhibit at the HARN, Cotton Club Museum and Cultural Center, Florida Innovation HUB at University of Florida, Pen Pal Luncheon with 3rd graders from Williams Elementary School, and Santa Fe College and UF scholarship recipients. We also have an evening meeting once a month for those who can’t break for lunch. 
 
One of Altrusa’s main projects is Altrusa House (AH), a day health care facility for adults. AH provides socialization for those who otherwise would have to stay home, and allows caretakers to have time for work or rest. Other local projects include the K-2nd grade Read-In, Make a Difference Day (MADD), Pen Pals and the Middle School Literacy Awards which promote literacy in our community. Internationally, the club supports newly naturalized citizens, UN Day, Friends of Casa Materna, and a sister club in Novorossisk, Russia. Our major fundraisers are Trading Closets, a sale of women’s gently used clothing to raise funds for Altrusa House, and Stuff the Bus, a fundraiser for homeless children of Alachua County.

If you’re looking for a way to give back to your community, meet great people with common interests, and expand your knowledge of your community, please consider the Altrusa International of Gainesville, Florida club.

Our lunch meetings take place on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at 11:45 am. Please note: June, July, November and December, we meet only on the second Thursday.
