Community Impact Program (CIP)
The Community Impact Program is a significant 2-year project chosen by the club membership that addresses specific needs of the community.
The current Community Impact Program was designed to assist citizens experiencing homelessness and food insecurity in Sussex County. Always a concern, this need has significantly increased during the covid-19 public health crisis and its aftermath.
This program is in affect from January, 2022 through December, 2023 and its goals will be accomplished through a variety of projects and support for existing organizations. Some of those projects are described below.
During March, 2022 Z Club partnered with Schell Brothers, Blooming Boutique and the Karen Wearden office of Edward Jones to collect food and personal care items to be distributed through the Food Bank of Delaware and the Epworth Food Pantry. Monies were also raised for these organizations through the Schell Brothers Kudos program.
