The Zonta Club of Northampton Area has been dedicated to Zonta’s mission of empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy since 1934. As we say in our club, “we act locally and we act globally”.
Over the years, our Club has supported many local programs through service and advocacy. Recent agencies we’ve supported include Motherwoman, the Prison Birth Project, YWCA Springfield, and the Aids Foundation of Western Massachusetts.
We are continuing to work with Tapestry Health, providing advocacy and helping with fundraising. The main office is in Northampton, a community-based non-profit in western Massachusetts offering affordable, high quality care, including family planning services, reproductive health exams, STI screenings, HIV counseling and testing, needle exchange, outreach efforts, a WIC nutrition program, and much more.
We raise funds for Safe Passage, our local non-profit working to eliminate domestic violence, by walking in the annual Hot Chocolate Walk/Run: Step Up for Safe Passage on the first Sunday in December.
We are now accepting nominations for our third annual Girl of the Year Award (for girl 10 to 15) and applications for the Zonta International’s Young Women in Public Affairs Award (for young women 16 to 19 years old). The deadline for submitting is Friday, March 10, 2016. Check out the sidebar for links to information.
