Zonta Club of Espoo-Kauniainen donates gift cards to nursing home care workers
The Zonta Club of Espoo-Kauniainen, Finland, bought gift certificates from a small local café and donated them to care workers in a local nursing home.
Challenged with the task of encouraging nurses, doctors and others, who work among risk groups amid tight restrictions due to COVID-19, the club members decided to buy gift certificates for care home personnel.
The club purchased 60 gift certificates from a local organic café, thus supporting a business, which struggled under COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants and cafes.
The gift certificates were distributed among the care workers, who were visibly moved by the gesture. The story of this deed was published in a nationwide newspaper and got some other Zonta clubs to follow the example. Additionally, a few new members joined Zonta.
