Zonta Local Service Committee
Our Local Service Committee presents grants to several projects who align with the mission of Zonta to improve the status of women: Rachel Gartner with the Catholic Charities Organization, Leigha of Guardian House. Members of the Local Service Committee include Chair: Donna Dolly and committee members Dawn Judkins, Cherie Coe, Cindy Fitzgerald, Peg Hurlburt, and Betty Gancher.
Each month, the members of the Zonta Club of Glens Falls do an in-kind donation. In October, members brought donations for Victory's Closet, including kitchen items, small appliances, bath towels, sheets, personal hygiene items, and baby items. Victory's Closet is run by Catholic Charities with help from Soroptomist volunteers and assists local domestic violence survivors with starting over. In November, about sixteen bags full of these items were dropped off to Victory's Closet by members of the local service committee, who got to take a tour! We are proud to support this important resource in our community.
