Altrusa Club members will be participating in the program with volunteers to help teachers and students with school supplies, fundraising events, community assistance opportunities, and social media, as indicated on the organization's website. Altrusa International of St. Augustine, Inc. was organized in 1959 as an extension of the Altrusa Club of Jacksonville, and Altrusa International which was founded in 1917. "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.
