VolunteerNow will celebrate and honor Ruth Altshuler’s commitment to service in Dallas with the 2016 VolunteeerNow Lifetime Achievement Award. Mrs. Altshuler will receive the award at the 10th Annual Hearts of Texas Luncheon.
Ruth Altshuler defines what it means to be a community volunteer. Through more than six decades serving her hometown of Dallas as a civic leader, she blazed trails for women, mobilized support from her friends for worthy causes, and volunteered her time to transform Dallas. Mrs. Altshuler has served on numerous community boards, and for many of these organizations, she was the first woman to serve on and/or chair the board.
Her board leadership includes Southern Methodist University Board of Trustees, Communities Foundation of Texas, Salvation Army National Board and Salvation Army Dallas Advisory Board, United Way, Zale-Lipshy Hospital, and Goodwill Industries. Mrs. Altshuler credits her time with the Junior League of Dallas as sparking her lifelong commitment to transforming her community through volunteerism.
