Carlisle Area Sertoma Club

Each year, Sertoma Clubs raise more than $20 million for local community projects, focusing on speech and hearing, national heritage, youth and other community needs. The Carlisle Area Sertoma club also works to fulfill the ever-changing needs of our community. These projects include:

Several Automated Electronic Defibrillators (AED's) were donated to the local police and fire departments, including Carlisle Borough, Middlesex, Mt. Holly Springs, Newville, and North Middleton.

Provide free Hearing screening at community events.

Sponsor the Carlisle Junior Police Academy; a summer program for at-risk children. They attend classes to learn more about the law, why laws are made and general practices of community services.

Annually give $1000 College scholarship(s) to deaf and hard of hearing student(s) and/or students continuing their education in the field of helping those with speech/hearing disabilities.  We have given scholarships totaling over $20,000 to local students since instituting the scholarship program.
