PENDLETON — A portion of sales at The Yogurt Shoppe will be donated to Altrusa International of Pendleton’s Feed the Child program.

The public is invited to enjoy tasty treats while helping provide food for needy students through the Altrusa project. The fundraiser is Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at 1803 S.W. Emigrant Ave., Pendleton.

During the 2017-18 school year, Altrusans distributed 8,887 bags of food to students in kindergarten through 12th grade who might otherwise not have access to food on the weekends. More than 250 children and youths benefited from the project. In addition, 83 people volunteered approximately 523 hours to assist with the effort.

An international organization, Altrusa’s main focuses include literacy, education and environmental concerns. Also, each club takes on projects and support programs, both in their individual communities and beyond.
