Thank you generous rail trail neighbors for allowing us the opportunity to recharge our e-bikes.

Concord Zonta donations

The Zonta Club of Concord, local affiliate of the worldwide NGO Zonta International, made a donation to three local organizations to support women impacted by social isolation and economic crisis caused by COVID-19. In its most recent effort, Zonta delivered food and gas gift cards totaling $2,400 to representatives of the Crisis Center of Central NH, the Friends Program, and Merrimack Valley Day Care Services. Club members asked the executives of these organizations (Jennifer Pierson of CCCNH, Nancy Paul of the Friends Program and Marianne Barter of MVDC) to present them to women, especially low-income essential workers, those living in shelters and vulnerable seniors who were facing financial challenges during this COVID-19 pandemic.  In addition, the Crisis Center was given two types of face masks for use at the domestic violence shelter.
