The following projects are in support of Refuge House.
Description: This service project aims to support and provide a sense of dignity to women in our community who are victims of rape. Zonta members will put together 80 “comfort packs” of clothes and toiletries for rape victims so they can be clothed after their hospital stay. They are unable to go home in the clothing they wear to the hospital because law enforcement keeps it for evidence.
Zonta Objective: Improve the health and well-being of women
Outcome: Women who seek medical treatment following a rape will receive a “comfort pack” of clothes to wear home from the hospital, along with personal toiletries.
