Zonta Club of Austin, MN brings More than Pink to girls

The More Than Pink project is a non-profit organization in Austin, MN, that provides a six-week-long program for girls in school from third to sixth grade. Three years ago, the organization contacted the Zonta Club of Austin, MN, USA, and feeling that it was a worthwhile service project, the club took on the service project.

Since then, the club has been filling pink cinch bags with special items such as pink journals and pens, chapsticks, toothbrushes and paste, nail clippers, nail polishes, hand sanitizer, travel-size first aid kits and a small pack of kleenexes.

Due to COVID-19 happening over the last two years, enrollment has been down, but this year, the club is happy to say that the project had 100 girls signed up, along with a waiting list. They are happy to provide more girls to more girls.
