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!”
This is our Zonta Club of Northampton’s June 2019 to May 2020: our 88 years Club! You can look at our Club’s History to see what it was for so long.
We will be having applications for the Zonta International’s several items for women with education and/or work. The first one will be ready about September, and we’ll have that to tell you.
We are planning a third Period Project next January & February, along with the Quaboag Valley and Springfield Zonta clubs in Western Massachusetts near the Connecticut River. Once again, we collected feminine products to share with women in need at shelters and centers. We hope even more people will be contributing donations of products or money!
This is the Centennial Celebration year for Zonta International. We have been empowering women internationally for 100 years!
We have also done several Service and Advocacy benefits:
- Working 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.
Please visit often! Soon you will be able to sign up to a Mailing List to receive occasional newsletters and announcements of specific projects, programs and other events.
