Zonta Club of Glens Falls spreads Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women message and serves local violence survivors

The Zonta Club of Glens Falls, USA, is advertising the Zonta Says NO to Violence Against Women campaign with three electronic billboards. The Glens Falls National Bank provided space for a billboard outside the Cool Insurance Arena, and the club donated money for two more billboards on Corinth Road and on Route 4 near Whitehall. 

The club also joined with its local Vera Bradley Outlet to assist women and their children through the Catholic Charities Domestic Violence Office. Vera Bradley donated 16 backpacks, which the club members filled with donations requested by Catholic Charities to support women who have had to leave a dangerous situation with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Included were items such as towels, socks and  personal care items.  The Soroptimist International Club of the Adirondacks joined the Zontians in augmenting the collection.

Members of the Zonta Club of Glens Falls delivered filled backpacks to Catholic Charities for survivors of domestic violence. The orange bags were donations from the Soroptimists of the Adirondacks.
