To commemorate Zonta’s 100th anniversary, the Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer in USA, District 3, raised US$10,000 and presented a grant to the Rescue Mission of Trenton on 20 June.
The money was used to provide a new kitchen and counter tops for a home renovation provided by the Rescue Mission for local homeless women.
“Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer’s mission of improving the status of women and children is so clearly focused on this grant as the kitchen in the home for formerly homeless women allows for four women to start anew,” stated Denise Erb, co-president of the Zonta Club of Trenton/ Mercer.
The Rescue Mission of Trenton serves the truly needy men and women who have no place to turn for shelter, food, and clothing. The mission provides a safe, clean, warm refuge for the homeless, the hungry, the transient and the addicted.
The new home for women is the first home dedicated to women by the Rescue Mission. The Zonta Club of Trenton/Mercer was the only non-governmental agency and non-profit supporting this project.
