The Zonta Club of Jamestown received a $1,000 gift toward their Lily’s Hope service program, recently. The club wishes to recognize the fundraising and generosity of the Breast Cancer Support Group of Jamestown for all they’ve done for Lily’s Hope. To date, the Breast Cancer Support group in Jamestown has donated over $6,000.

Likewise, Zonta would like to thank Cross Roads Farm and Craft Market, The (Name) Sorority, Community Helping Hands, and our various community knitters and quilters who have all donated generously. “When people donate to Lily’s Hope, they help ease the very difficult [medical] journey, of the women who have visited us.” Rosanna Papalia, President-Elect of the Jamestown Zonta club, said. “This project was founded by a previous club President, Lily Olson, who felt the need for this service here in Jamestown because the closest place to ‘shop’ wigs was in Erie or Buffalo. Since it’s opening in 2010 Lily’s Hope has served over 400 women and touched the lives of countless others. It’s truly incredible.”

Lily’s Hope is a FREE resource for women who live in, or are being treated in, Chautauqua County for any medical diagnosis where hair loss is evident. Lily’s Hope provides free wigs, caps, hats, turbans, scarves and/or other accessories at their room which was lovingly donated and is maintained by WCA Hospital at the Jones Memorial Health Center on Glasgow Avenue in Jamestown.
