Since the Founding of Zonta of Douglas County, we have:

  • Summer Free Lunch Program in Castle Rock is locally sponsored by our club. Members coordinate the summer program to make sure school age kids have a lunch during the summer months when school is not in session. Members also volunteer each day at the lunch site. Each summer the program has expanded to include more and more students.
  • The Summer Free Lunch Program is a subsidiary program of Hunger Free Colorado.
  • Provided Victims Kits (New Sweat Suits and Toiletries, other items) for Castle Rock Police, Parker Police, and Lone Tree Police Victims Assistance Agencies, so that victims of domestic Violence, rape, or drug labs can retain some sense of dignity when they must give up clothes for evidence of health and safety reasons.
  • Volunteered in the Thrift Store, the Sassy Soiree and collected food, clothing and household items for the Douglas and Elbert County Task Force, in addition to awarding grants to help with aid to the truly needy in our community.
  • Volunteered and helped raise funds for the Women’s Crisis & Family Outreach organization, in addition to awarding grants to help fund ongoing counseling for Women and Children in Crisis.
  • Provided a Grant to the Douglas County Wings program to ensure that no child who wanted to take the GED exam would be turned away for lack of funds.
  • Provided a college scholarship (Young Women in Public Affairs) to outstanding young women whose efforts to give to others, and with an interest in future Public Service careers set them well apart from their peers.
  • Supported the Polaris Project fighting human trafficking in the United States especially down the I-25 corridor through Colorado.
  • Volunteered at Project CURE each month.
  • Supported Rags to Roses by purchasing Zonta jewelry and notecards in turn using them for a fundraiser.
