The Zonta Christmas Fund
For more than 25 years, Zonta Club of Kaua'i and
The Garden Island Newspaper have teamed up to raise funds for people in our community who are in need of support. In 2019, we received $30,570 in donations which included the $5,000 donor match through the Hawai'i Community Foundation. With the help of nine agencies providing us with the stories of families and individuals that could use
our help during the holiday season, we were able to provide 749 keiki and kupuna with a brighter Christmas, all through the support of our community and friends of Kaua'i! Mahalo to all who so generously give to this effort...
