Safe and Healthy Children recipient of Zonta donation

The Zonta Club of Findlay presented a check for over $2,000 to the Hancock County Center for Safe and Healthy Children at its June 3 meeting.
The funds were raised at a style show held in April. The Center for Safe and Healthy Children was chosen as the recipient of proceeds because Zonta has joined the fight against human trafficking and domestic violence through its Zonta Says No campaign.
Tom Blunk, director of the center, says the money will be put toward the center’s upcoming efforts to educate the community about human trafficking and the danger social media can present, especially to minors using Facebook and other social websites and apps.
Zonta members also voted to give money to the YMCA to send a child to camp, and to the Daughter Project, a northwest Ohio home that provides a safe place for minors rescued from sexual trafficking to live. Members also brought diapers and wipes to be donated to the Women’s Resource Center.
Also at the meeting, Kristi Bryant was presented the 2014 Woman of Achievement Award, given annually to a member who exemplifies Zonta’s values of service to the community. Bryant has served as past president of the Zonta Club of Findlay, helped found the ZClub at Liberty-Benton High School and has served on many other committees in the club.
