Local Zonta Volunteers Feed the Homeless

Peconic Bay Zonta co-president Diane Greenberg of Wading River joined other members of the local Zonta club to cook a holiday meal for approximately 30 homeless adults on eastern Long Island. Making a turkey dinner with all the fixings is a yearly volunteer service project members perform. Peconic Bay Zonta is a local branch of Zonta International, an organization that works to improve the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy.

The project is accomplished in cooperation with Maureen’s Haven, which provides support and compassionate services to homeless adults on the East End of Long Island. The food was brought to the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Cutchogue to be served to those in need by volunteers.
