The Campbell River Altrusa Club has a mission – to care for its community, its children and its needs.
The club supports a variety of causes throughout the Campbell River area and most recently helped the Campbell River Hospital Foundation with a donation towards dental equipment for the Operating Room.
This is a self-contained portable system from drills to suction that is used for dental restoration; this equipment is used on both children and adults in the Campbell River Hospital Operating Room.
Each month, there are two full days dedicated to dental restoration and filings to meet the oral needs of children. Dentistry using general anesthesia is most often used for children with severe anxiety that have an inability to cooperate due to their age, compromised health, special needs or extensive dental needs.
The Campbell River Altrusa Club raises funds in a variety of different ways. Their beautiful evergreen floral swags with handcrafted bows have become a Christmas time favourite, woven Afghans depicting scenes from around our community and their Annual Movie Night at the Tidemark Theatre.
