Zonta Advocacy
Zonta is a local and international organization of executives and professionals working together to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. We envision a world in which women’s rights are recognized as human rights and woman are able to achieve their full potential. It is our goal that every woman is literate; has access to education, health care, legal and economic resources; and no woman lives in fear of violence.


Cycle Forward is focused on creating immediate and effective impact for women in need. One hundred percent of the donations we receive will be used to purchase pads/tampons in bulk.
These items will be distributed directly to women in need through our partners.

Cycle Forward is working to distribute menstrual products to organizations in the area, including the following:

Lee County Homeless Coalition
Gladiolus Food Pantry
Eva’s Closet & Foundation
