OGDEN -- Altrusa International Inc. of Ogden donated $1,000 to Your Community Connection for the organization's domestic violence shelter building fund.
Altrusa President Pat Ropelato presented the donation to Executive Director Julee Smith during a YCC board meeting this week. The YCC is trying to raise funds to expand and renovate its domestic violence shelter. Because of a lack of space, the shelter has, at times, had to turn away people and find them shelter elsewhere.
Altrusa International Inc. of Ogden has been serving the community since 1954. The club is part of a worldwide service organization, Leading to a Better Community, through leadership, partnership and service.
