All in for Zonta

Canning Times - - NEWS -

Women's refuge Zonta House has been the re­cip­i­ent of not one but two char­ity drives ahead of Christ­mas.

THE sea­son of giv­ing is well and truly upon us, with two lo­cal com­mu­nity groups start­ing cam­paigns to sup­port women’s refuge Zonta House.

Ross­moyne IGA and Can­ning Vale Pri­mary School have both been in­volved in sep­a­rate ini­tia­tives to col­lect much-needed dona­tions for the refuge ahead of Christ­mas.

The su­per­mar­ket launched a 12 Days of Christ­mas cam­paign, which en­cour­ages peo­ple to do­nate Christ­mas food such as mince pies and cus­tard for food ham­pers which will be dis­trib­uted to the refuge.

The cam­paign runs for the first 12 days of Christ­mas be­fore the shop­ping cen­tre will host a Ham­per Mak­ing Day for peo­ple to help pack the ham­pers on De­cem­ber 13 from 10am to 1pm.

Can­ning coun­cil­lor Yaso Pon­nuthu­rai helped con­nect the two upon hear­ing IGA wanted to take part in a char­ity drive at Christ­mas.

Can­ning Vale Pri­mary School stu­dents held a food ap­peal for the refuge, with at least 50 un­der­priv­i­leged fam­i­lies set to ben­e­fit from the gen­eros­ity of the school com­mu­nity.
