As an organization that seeks to empower women through service and advocacy, Zonta believes it is important to recognize local individuals and club members for their outstanding contributions that benefit women in their communities.

Hygiene for homeless girls

Club members collect items throughout the year to provide gift bags to needy girls during the holidays – identified in collaboration with school counselors. Gift bags can contain an assortment of personal hygiene, hair, nail and grooming products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, bath gel, lotion, lip balm, tooth brushes/paste/ floss & similar items.  Additional items such as clothing, gloves, hats, scarves, and freshly laundered/gently used donated jackets are provided when available.

Children’s books for Rogue Winterfest

Each year, Zonta joins partnering organizations to provide children’s books for the annual Rogue Winterfest weekend holiday event in which children receive free books which are autographed by Santa.
