WARSAW — Each quarter, Altrusa Club members enjoy a program meeting to learn more about what is going on in the community to determine if and how they can help.
On March 7, members heard from Rebecca Bazzoni, founder of Joe’s Kids, Warsaw; and her son, Nick, a junior at Warsaw Community High School and a participant in Kosciusko Youth Leadership Academy.
For his KYLA project, Nick has partnered with his mother’s organization and has established Labor of Love. While Joe’s Kids is a pediatric therapist organization specializing in working with children from birth to age 18 for physical, occupational and speech therapy, Nick’s volunteers sew weighted blankets and vests for those children who need them.
For more information about these programs, contact Rebecca at joe-kids.org and Nick at [email protected] for more information.
Altrusans also reviewed the results of their March 2 Spring Bazaar after which coordinator Vick Martin did a victory dance. Over 175 shoppers visited the bazaar.
Members are also preparing for Altrusa District Six’s annual conference to be held in Muncie April 5 to 7. Four members will represent the local club at the event.
The club’s next meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 21, at Richard’s Restaurant. More information about Altrusa International of Warsaw, Inc., may be found on Facebook as Altrusa-Warsaw or by contacting members at [email protected].
