Zonta Club of Long Island sends relief to Haiti
In August 2021, The Zonta Club of Long Island made a large donation to the Daughters of Wisdom, who have missions in Haiti. This donation will help women in the area, which has been devastated by a recent earthquake and hurricane, and help empower women through service and advocacy.
The donation was fundraised a few years ago in loving memory of a recently departed Zontian, who was a wife of a Knights of Columbus member. Her Zonta club and the local Knights of Columbus co-hosted the event. Originally, the money was meant for the club's annual birthing kit project, where kits are sent to Haiti and other areas overseas. However, due to COVID-19 measures, their project was put on hold in until recently.
