The Zonta Club of Longview, Texas, USA, put on a Gifts of Giving fundraiser on Saturday, 5 December, to benefit victims of abuse and sex trafficking. The event, held at a local high school, is part of the club’s Zonta Says NO to Violence against Women campaign.
The club asked community members to donate items such as restaurant gift cards, clothes, bedding, hygiene items, over-the-counter medicines and more. The donations went to Refuge of Light, For the Silent, Women’s Center of East Texas and Rahab’s Retreat.
Longview residents volunteered at the fundraiser, along with members from the Zonta Club of Longview and Longview High School Z Club.
