Zonta Club of Upper Hudson Valley spreads awareness with Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women wristbands

zonta-club-of-upper-hudson-valleyThe Zonta Club of Upper Hudson Valley, New York, purchased Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women wristbands for all members, plus 35 additional to be distributed to caring women.

The club asked its members to wear them during the 16 Days of Activism and longer, if desired. The wristbands encouraged many conversations. We photographed club members with their wristbands at their December meeting.

Thanks to a successful year of fundraising, the club was able to purchase many holiday gifts for the residents of domestic violence shelters in both Columbia and Greene counties. Shelter staff were given a budget and they did the shopping for all residents.
