Shoe Boxes for the Bangor Homeless Shelter

All 21 members of the Bangor Club (even the home bound members) participated in monetary donations and donated items of toothpaste, brushes, combs, lip balm, shower gel, socks, mittens, shampoos, razors, etc. collected to fill 38 Shoe boxes for the Homeless Shelter at Christmas.  Other personal items were donated to the supply closet at the shelter.

Service Project:  Ronald McDonald House

Members donated $10,000 over a few years to help construct the Ronald McDonald House where there is a place called "Gail's Room" in honor of member Gail Ackerly-Hodgins who was President in 1994-1996 and worked tirelessly to bring the project to fruition.  Altrusans are asked to provide complete meals for 25 guests one evening per month.

Literacy Service Project:  Literacy Book Project

Twenty nine Bangor schools were each given a book of their choice to add to their library. 
At the beginning of the school year each librarian was sent a letter asking what book they would like added to their selection.  Altrusans purchased these books through a local discounter and presented them to the Librarians at a reception in May.
