Due to the pandemic, the Zonta Club of Hamburg – Orchard Park will be focusing on service projects to assist others in a safe environment.
We assembled birthing kits for third world countries to provide a clean birthing environment for mother and child. District clubs receive several requests from Medical Women International, Global Links, World Vision and the United Nations for these kits. We shipped 1,750 kits to Nicaragua in October 2020. We will assemble kits again next spring.
We prepared two dozen Birthday Bags for a local Food Pantry providing the items needed for a birthday party for children.
In the past club members prepared dinner at the Ronald McDonald House for families whose children are hospitalized. This is currently on hold.
Our club participated with other clubs in the 16 Days of Activism from November 25th through December 10th to raise awareness of violence throughout the world.
