(Investing in Kids), Five Learning Years (FLY) program which provides small group literacy intervention to pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students in St Johns County, Fla.

"The Club's mission comes from the word altruism. We practice an unselfish regard for the welfare of others in local communities and throughout the world," said Eileen Holden, president of Altrusa International St. Augustine.
