All in for Zonta
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.
