Service Project:  Senior Volunteer Service Award

This project honors valuable contributions of senior citizens to their communities.  Recognizing these citizens is in effect "Paying it forward", the very mission of Altrusa which promotes service and efficiency. 

Doris Mahoney Memorial Scholarship

The club lost a dear friend and 27-year member, Doris Mahoney, in December of 2012.  Doris worked in the nursing field for over 60 years.  The club chose to honor her by establishing a scholarship in her name.  The scholarship is offered to a student in the Nursing Degree program at Middlesex Community College.

Literacy Project:  "My Personal Accomplishment-MY GED"

The club raises funds to give a scholarship to a GED grad every year.  The first scholarship of $250 was awarded in 1990. The scholarship is intended to help the graduate further their education.  It is presented by Altrusans at the recipient's graduation ceremony.  This year's winner from Brazil is using it to go to Middlesex Community College with an eye on a degree in psychology.
