Members of Altrusa International of Hermiston helped in giving back, both locally and internationally, while working on projects during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

A number of the women gathered in the morning to make sandwiches and snacks in preparation for the American Red Cross blood drive at Good Shepherd Medial Center. The group then served the snacks and coffee, as well as checking in donors for the blood drive.

Later in the day, members worked on its International Relations project, which included making personal hygiene kits for girls in Haiti.

Altrusa clubs around the world are active in service in an effort to create better communities. Anyone interested in how they can become involved with the service club are invited to contact the local group via hermistonaltrusa@gmail.com, www.districttwelve.altrusa.org or search Facebook.
