Congratulations!

In this biennium, let us take the time and opportunity to recognize and acknowledge those around us that empower women through service and advocacy.

D4 Clubs identified in newest issue of THE ZONTIAN!

Congratuation to the  ZCs of Buffalo  where members spend time mentoring the girls of Teach and Restore Youth (TRY) on a weekly basis. Girls are taken off the streets, given a place to live and are assisted with enrolling in school, finishing their GED or getting a job.

The ZC of Owen Sound members are donating clothing and hygiene products to women in the hospital due to experiencing violence or health or mental health issues.
