International Service, the fourth Avenue of Service, comprises those activities that members do to advance international understanding, goodwill, and peace by fostering acquaintance with people of other countries. Through reading, correspondence and cooperation in club activities and projects, our goal is to familiarize club members with the cultures, customs, accomplishments, aspirations, and problems of people in other lands and seek ways to help them..
We have participated in Boxes to Afghanistan and Shoe Boxes to Haiti. We have also participated as an International Sponsor for Global Grants to:
- Purchase medical equipment for cataract surgeries in India

- Develop water sources and 150 family sanitation facilities for Nalerigu, Ghana,
