The Zonta Club of Hamburg – Orchard Park will be focusing on service projects this year including working with the Family Justice Center and Kathleen Mary House to assist victims of domestic violence.
We assembled birthing kits for third world countries to provide a clean birthing environment for mother and child. The latest birthing kits will be shipped to Suriname, a South American country. District clubs receive several requests from Medical Women International and the United Nations for these kits. We are currently gathering 3,000 kits to be shipped to Nicaragua.
Our club assisted local women veterans and their children during the holiday season. We also provided a holiday party for Gerard Place, a transitional home for single parents and their children.
Our club participated in the 16 Days of Activism from November 25th through December 10th to raise awareness of violence throughout the world. We marched in the Holiday Parade in Hamburg wearing “Zonta Says No to Violence” tee-shirts.
