Local Service

Areas in the past that the service committee was pleased to provide financial assistance from our discretionary service funds include the following examples:

  • we supported women and young women who are in need;
  • we supported a woman with serious health issues by helping to fund the purchase of a hospital type of bed, so she could continue her recovery at home;
  • we contributed funds to other Zonta Clubs in Ontario to support their assembly of Birthing kits;
  • we matched our speaker’s honorarium to purchase a Family Kit to assist a family in Africa, through Give International.

In addition, we continue to fund our traditional projects. These include:

  • Science awards at elementary schools,
  • wreath for Remembrance Day,
  • literacy program through Scrabble Tournament,
  • adoption of a magazine at the Library for teen female readers,
  • LEAF,
  • The Women’s Centre
  • International Projects of Zonta.
