Service & Advocacy

The mission of the Zonta Club of Oak Brook supports the international mission of empowering women through service and advocacy in our local community through hands-on service, primarily through volunteering with partner organizations. We are always interested in new projects whether suggested by our members or by non-profits in the Oak Brook area with whom we can partner.

Over the past several years, members of our club continue to support many projects including the following:

  • Volunteering with Poised for Success (poisedforsuccess.org/) assisting with monthly clothing intake at their store and assisting with their annual November fundraiser
  • Assisting with event set-up for the Family Shelter Service (metrofamily.org) annual Holiday Shoppe and other fundraising events
  • Hosting an International Women’s Day Breakfast fundraiser that supports women’s projects in fulfillment of our mission
