Longview Zonta Club celebrates giving

The Longview Zonta Club celebrated giving on Tuesday.

Five East Texas organizations received grants totaling $17,000 from the club at their luncheon.

The service grants fund groups that promote access to education, teach self-sufficiency,  and work to end violence against women.

"There's a vision of the future that is free of violence against women and children, and Parenting Resource Center shares in that vision with their Homefront program," says Zonta Foundation President, Ellie Gordon, "We like to give these grants now at Christmas time because it's just in that season of giving.">

Funds for the grants come from the proceeds of the Zonta Antique Show held in March.
