Altrusa seeking donations and sponsors
BY JOE PAYNE
Altrusa of the Central Coast—a community service organization that promotes volunteerism in support of youth literacy—is seeking donors and sponsors for two upcoming programs.
Altrusa will be celebrating Make a Difference Day with the C.A.N. Project, which will construct a model of the Santa Maria Public Library inside the library out of donated canned foods and books. After the celebration, the food will be donated to the Santa Barbara County Foodbank and the books will be donated to area libraries.
Altrusa is teaming up with KRTO Mega 97.1 FM for a live remote “Java Jam” event on Sept. 13, which will serve as a collection drive from 6 to 10 a.m. at Foods Co, 1465 S. Broadway, Santa Maria. Club members will also be at the Food Maxx located at 2440 S. Broadway, in Santa Maria on Sept. 14 and 16 from 10 a.m. to noon. Donations can also be dropped off at Richard’s Photography, 121 Jones St., in Santa Maria during business hours. More info: 834-3013 or email@example.com.
The annual Festival of Trees event ends with a drawing for the decorated trees on Dec. 8, with community members purchasing raffle tickets to win a tree Nov. 24 through Dec. 7. Altrusa is currently accepting tree sponsorships, which include decorating and providing gifts to go under the trees. Community members, organizations, and businesses are welcome to sponsor a tree through Nov. 10. More info: 868-7718 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
