From the The Student Newspaper of the University of Jamestown:
“Dr. Briese described the Golden Z Club as the “university version” of Zonta International. The club has been going for a few years now and its purpose is to prepare women for leadership roles in their professional careers by giving them experience.
In the past these experiences have included events like their 16 days of activism. This event takes place in the weeks between thanksgiving and winter break. During the 16 days of activism the club brings awareness to a social injustice issue. This year they brought awareness to domestic violence in hetero and homosexual relationships by putting up posters all over campus that share relative statistics. One of their charitable events includes selling yellow roses during Valentine’s Day and at plays in the Reiland Fine Arts Center. With those funds they hope to purchase one solar water purifier for a family in need. After exceeding expectations last year, they were able to purchase two purifiers. With your help they can donate two more this year.
Another way they help lookout for our community is the North Dakota Period Project. Dr. Briese says, “We know how expensive feminine hygiene products are. So, we are trying to ease the burden by packing pencil cases filled with feminine hygiene products to provide for UJ, JHS and grade schools here in Jamestown.” The club is very proud to serve in a big sister role in their community. For this event the Golden Z Club is partnering with the Jimmie Jane’s to help as many young lady’s as they can. For more information on how you can get involved please check out the poster below! ”
