[November 01, 2013]
Zonta Club of Lincoln gave
recent donations to the Logan County court advocate's office for
Sojourn Shelter to support local domestic violence victims.
So far in 2013, the advocate's office has assisted 70 clients with
emergency orders of protection and provides ongoing assistance.
The club collected used cellphones, which can be reprogrammed and
given to women to call 911 in an emergency.
Zonta Club of Lincoln also used $800 of last year's turkey dinner
profits to set up a fund at Lincoln IGA. Many domestic violence
victims have no choice but to "grab the kids and run." They often
have no formula, food or diapers or any means to buy them. Charlie
Lee at Lincoln IGA has often quietly provided items to these
families at no cost to them. Zonta Club of Lincoln chose to support
his efforts to help local domestic violence victims. Access to this
fund will be given only by the Sojourn court advocate to the
neediest clients. The community's ongoing support of the annual
dinner allowed this generous donation.
