Club News-Service Projects

In our 64 years of existence, our club oriented its action in many ways according to the needs of the time.  We assisted sick persons; had a "Children Birthday Foundation", participated in "Cultural Evenings" with young people from the music school, worked with "Le Magasin Partage", "La Maison Auberiviere", assisted elderly in playing Bingo at their Home.  We put up a library in La Champenoise, an elderly Home.  We also brought comfort to prisoners and ex-prisoners from La Maison Gomin, a prison for women.  Now and since many years, we concentrate on "La Maison Zoe Blais" where many projects such as our Easter Baskets, a Sugar Party and other projects are welcomed and also put much effort on our Christmas Dinner for our elderly.

Noel des Aines

December 2014 marked the 19th anniversary of the Quebec club's Christmas celebration with the residents at Villa d'Or de St-Nicolas.  A new theme is chosen every year and the Quebec club members entertain the residents, provide lunch and gifts.

Paniers de Paques

At Eastertime, the club sets aside approximately $2000. to be spent by families being served by Maison Zoe Blais.  Altrusans take the families out shopping for their Easter groceries and literally, pay the bill. In the spring of 2013, 13 families participated and benefitted from this generous project.

Donuts...everywhere!

Altrusans joined the staff at Maison Zoe Blais to make 325 dozen donuts-that's 3900 donuts to be used for a fund raising event at the home.  

Club News-Fund Raising

In the past our fund raising efforts went from chocolate making and selling to many special fund raising evenings or cultural events.  Our main fund raising activity today is our Pizzaghetti which is held each year in May and we do not hesitate to call on the community for funds for each of our projects.
