Service, Dedication and Loyalty is the strength of the Zonta Club of Rochester. Our Club members are always eager to help local agencies who support Zonta’s mission of advancing the status of women. A few of the service activities that we have engaged in are:

  • Supporting women’s shelters by collecting personal care items
  •  Providing registration and auction assistance at the fundraising events of local agencies
  •  Knitting winter hats, scarves and gloves for homeless youth
  • Purchasing and embellishing journals for the women in a domestic violence program
