Aug 02, 2018

Lima’s Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Program (UMADAOP) received a timely and needed donation.

The Altrusa Club donated backpacks, books, clothing, and other school supplies to the Lima UMADAOP.  This donation is just one of the many service projects done by the club every year.  The mission of the Altrusa Club is to provide services to the community, and this donation was just another way for the group to continue that mission.

“It all fits in with our mission of promoting literacy and helping the community out.  We want to help the kids be ready when it’s time for school to start.  We want to make sure that they get off on the right foot,” said Sandra Bentley, Vice President of the Altrusa Lima Ohio Club.

The Altrusa Club plans to work more with the Lima UMADAOP in the future.
