Letter to the Editor: Altrusa Thanks Community Volunteers

A huge thank-you from Altrusa International of Door County to all the volunteers who helped with the 21st annual Back-to-School Fair this year! Held on Aug. 4 at Sturgeon Bay High School, the Fair provided well over 600 local children in need – a record number this year – with grade-appropriate school supplies, new backpacks, new gym shoes and socks, school spirit shirts, registration fees and several other new items to start the school year. Roughly 83 community volunteers and 38 Altrusans worked the event itself – manning the various stations and guiding the children around the venue. Others helped with several days of set up. Altrusa also sends a big thanks to the staff at the high school for all their behind-the-scenes help with set up, tear down and clean up.  Altrusa alone cannot make this event happen, and is very grateful for the support of family, friends, the high school staff and community members each year.
