The Zonta Club of Central Oklahoma, USA, celebrated Zonta’s 100th anniversary in November in two ways.
First, club members furnished an apartment for Neighborhood Services Organization in support of a single mother and her 4-year-old son. The family’s homeless status arose suddenly, but club members responded by working one entire weekend to prepare and furnish an apartment where the family could live. Through this project, Zonta continues a long history of supporting victims and advocating against domestic violence and human trafficking.
The club also celebrated Zonta’s centennial at its November meeting, where members viewed a video on “What is Zonta?” and also heard a presentation about Zonta’s history of empowering women.
