Projects, Resources & Inspiration

To ensure membership within Zonta International our District and D4 clubs must have a standing Service committee to comply with the mission of empowering women worldwide through service and advocacy.

ZI also encourages clubs to develop new projects to refresh members’ involvement and to offer a service unique to their own community.

Encouraging new collaboration with two like-minded organizations.

Number of Members – 9

Contact: Judy Shannon, Club Presdient

The Zonta Club of Three Rivers Pittsburgh North has a long history of service to the Pittsburgh community.  As a small club, they have participated in joint projects with Zonta Clubs of Pittsburgh and Washington County.

On Dec 6, Club members went to the Garden Home Ministries-Sunflower House, a house for women that have been victims of human trafficking.  The Club donated gift cards and made personal holiday cards for each resident.  Toiletries were donated to the House.  This was done in conjunction with the Zonta Club of Pittsburgh.

In October they participated in Hearth’s Fall Fest fundraiser. Hearth is a home for homeless women and children.  The Club donated 8 Bed-in-a Bags from their Wish List and snacks.  The Club has been coordinating service projects with Hearth for over 15 years.

Right now they are working on scheduling a birthing kit assembly day with the ZC of Washington County.
