ALTRUSA INTERNATIONAL INC. OF SPRINGFIELD HOSTS CONFERENCE

AND INVITES COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION TO HELP HOMELESS CHILDREN

Members of 39 Altrusa Clubs from Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois will convene for a District Six Conference in Springfield, Illinois on May 2-4, 2014. The Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza. As these are states in which Lincoln walked, the theme will be “Tales and Trails of Lincoln”. While in Springfield, members of Altrusa International will attend conference education seminars and tour the Lincoln sites. The last day of the conference will feature “Undies Sunday.” This drive is for our community’s 800 displaced and homeless children.

Conference attendees from all three states will be bringing such donations. The community is invited to help jump start our donations by dropping off their donation of new youth underwear, t-shirts, socks or personal hygiene items at any Marine Bank lobby during the month of April. Collection boxes for donations will be available in all of the Marine Bank in lobbies in April. Join us and let’s get this drive off to a good start.

Organized in 1948, Altrusa International Club of Springfield has a long history of improving the quality of life for those in need in our community. Recent projects in Springfield include: food drives for local pantries, supporting District #186 underprivileged students, Kumler personal care kits, holiday assistance at Contact Ministries, grants for Career Assistance Program, senior center food baskets, meals for the Ronald McDonald House, Asbury’s children’s supper hour, St John’s breadline, Northside community library, as well as volunteering at numerous community events.
