Altrusa International is an international non-profit organization focused on community service. Altrusa of Gig Harbor has served this community since 1981, providing its members with the opportunity to make a difference for a better life here while they learn leadership skills and support each other as friends. Over the past 41 years, our members have started basic education programs, provided scholarships to students and women returning to the workplace, donated funds to organizations providing hunger relief in Gig Harbor and helped support the Peninsula Youth Orchestra. Through our annual Empty Bowls event, we help make a positive impact on relieving child hunger right here in Gig Harbor. We invite you to learn more about our organization and our work.
