Thank You to Chelsea Public Works Commissioner

To the Editor;

The Zonta Club of Chelsea and North Shore would like to publicly extend a special Thank You to Public Works Commissioner, Fidel Maltez, for the use of a city message board for Zonta International’s annual “Zonta Says NO to Violence Again Women” campaign. 

 Due to the pandemic suspending traditional fundraising efforts this year, Chelsea Zonta was faced with the challenge of creatively publicizing our annual advocacy crusade for the safety of women, and our ongoing support of HarborCOV which does that work so beautifully in this community.

Without hesitation Fidel graciously agreed to our request to provide the message board.  The message, displayed in both English and Spanish, was strategically placed in Bellingham Square for the duration of the campaign providing an immeasurable and invaluable amount of publicity for this campaign and Zonta’s mission.  

With the drastic spike in domestic violence being reported during this pandemic, never has it been more crucial to publicize the help available to women.  With the unflagging support of Fidel and the City of Chelsea Public Works Department, we are certain we will be able to help many women finding themselves in domestic violence situations.  For that, we are extremely grateful.

Thank you,

Janice Tatarka,
