The Hudson League for Service (HLFS) was founded in 1947, by a group of women to afford the opportunity to render volunteer service for the greatest benefit to the community, emphasizing the needs and interest of children. You are invited to join the HLFS! Dues of only $10 per year cover postage and other administrative costs. All funds raised are returned to the Hudson community though annual grants and scholarships.

The HLFS sponsors the Ice Cream Social in June as part of Hudson Days, the Scholastic book fairs in the fall, Caroling on the Green in November, and a monthly Red Cross Blood Drive at Barlow Center. Other service opportunities undertaken by league members include a coat drive, food pantry volunteering, sponsoring a family through the holiday giving tree, and other projects as needs arise.
Students are encouraged to participate in HLFS and other service activities. The Hudson League for Service grants a $1,000 college scholarship to a high school senior (Hudson resident) who has given exemplary service to others. Information and applications can be obtained from this website, or by contacting the league VPHudsonLeagueForService@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is March 1.
In addition, community grants are provided to a variety of local groups who apply for specific grants. Information and applications for grants can also be obtained from this website or by contacting HLFS. Fundraising events allow HLFS to return approximately $10,000 annually to the community.
