In June 2019, we were able to present a check to First Step for $9,000 - proceeds from the 2019 private shopping fundraiser for First Step: Wayne County Project on Domestic and Sexual Violence!

Over the past 25 years, we have raised funds totaling $541,500 from this event alone for First Step!!

ZONTA Farmington Novi ADVOCACY SUMMIT

 

Zonta,  First Step and local law enforcement held an Advocacy Summit on September 25, 2018, to impart important information on an innovative program (the Lethality Assessment Program - LAP) to increase Domestic Violence victim  safety and offender accountability. 

Thank you for your support.
We hope to add a follow-up session in the near future!

In December 2019 Zonta Farmington Novi joined 4 other area Zonta clubs in renting a billboard along 14 Mile and I -75 to post the Zonta Says No to Violence Against Women banner. This activity was done to raise awareness of both Zonta and it's support of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign.

Mastectomy Pillows

We Believe in Service!

Zonta members are dedicated to improving the health status of women, including those who have had a mastectomy. 
This  pillow is used to protect the mastectomy incision site by comfortably  keeping the arm away from the site and absorbing any excess fluid. It  has an inner pillow, a cover and an adjustable strap. All are soft  flannel and the outer cover can be removed for washing!

​We continue to provide pillows to some area hospitals / medical centers.

Zonta members also have hosted
Valentine and Halloween parties at the shelter.  Our hope is that the parties provide a break for some much needed fun during their stay.
