Buckets of Love

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month.   The Zonta Club of LaSalle-Peru, Zonta Club of Ottawa, and Zonta Club of Streator invites all Illinois Valley residents to participate in two upcoming events in recognition this somber occasion:  Buckets of Love and Luminary of Hope.

Buckets of Love: 

In addition to the Luminary of Hope, Zonta members are filling buckets with much-needed supplies for the victims of violence to use as they transition from the shelter to new homes without violence.  On Saturday, October 1, 2011, Zonta members will be asking shoppers at local grocery stores to donate cleaning supplies and paper products to help fill their “Buckets of Love”.  The buckets will be donated to the a domestic violence shelter for victims of domestic and sexual violence.  Cash donations will also be accepted, as Zonta hopes to raise enough money to help the shelter make necessary upgrades to the shelter kitchen. 

 Informational materials will also be available at the October 1st event.
