2015 Donor Newsletter V.2
On Saturday, Oct. 22, 25 women from the Zonta Club of Hilo visited the CFS Hale Ohana Spouse Abuse Shelter and transformed the garage into an indoor child’s play area, in support of our goal to create a therapeutic, nurturing space for individuals & their children to heal from trauma. These women generously donated books and built book shelves for the children’s library, brought gravel for a brand-new outdoor pavilion and even made a tether ball game. They also put together a new stainless steel barbeque grill, and donated 130 hygiene bags which included washcloths, toothbrushes, body soap and more.
In addition to the time and effort that these ladies generously donated, they worked with The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Foundation to secure a $10,000 donation to CFS. The funding will go towards the children’s play area; a Zen room for participants who need a peaceful place to decompress; outdoor play spaces for children; bus tickets and monies for client assistance; car seats, clothing and much more.
Mahalo to the ladies of Zonta for cheerfully giving their time, sweat and energy!
