Altrusa International Inc. of Delta received a $500 grant from the International Foundation to purchase books for the Sugar Plum Book Fair. Proceeds from the book fair will fund scholarships for non-traditional students and ASTRA teens.
Nancy Hovde, Altrusa Club president, said grants of $250 to $2,000 are available from the Altrusa International Foundation, Inc., to improve the economic well-being and quality of life through the foundation's commitment to community service and literacy.
For the Sugar Plum Festival in November, Altrusa members selected a book which was used as the theme for their individually-decorated luncheon tables. The books — fiction and non-fiction, for children and adults — were then donated to the Delta Public Library. Delta Middle School received posters and educational materials for use by the special education department.blog comments powered by Disqus
