July 22 the Zonta Club of Coos Bay Area held its annual community garage sale at Pony Village Mall. The sale raised over $3,500.
As a service club and non-profit organization, our mission is to empower women worldwide through service and advocacy. We thank Pony Village Mall and Goodwill Industries of Lane and South Coast counties for partnering with Zonta to make our event a success. Pony Village Mall provided room space, tables and advertising at no charge. Goodwill collected leftover donations and paid Zonta 10 cents per pound through their new Donation Drive Program. This program is a win-win for organizations. It helps organizations raise funds at the same time providing Goodwill with donations to fund its programs and fulfill its mission: Providing employment and vocational opportunities to individuals with barriers to employment. We are grateful to live in a community with such great community partners and support.
