|Major Projects - Literacy Luncheon|
For more than 25 years, Altrusa International of Oak Ridge and the Oak Ridge Breakfast Rotary Club have partnered in a program that provides grants to literacy-related organizations in this area. The primary fund-raiser is a Literacy Luncheon in the Spring each year, hosted by both clubs. Applications for grant funding are accepted through December of that year and are reviewed by a Selection Committee of Altrusans and Rotarians. Wiiners are announced early in the following year and celebrated during March in conjunction with Rotary International's Literacy Month.
