Zonta Receives $7,500 Donation from ITT Aerospace
On Monday afternoon, August 23, 2021, ITT Aerospace presented Zonta SCV President, Nicole Miller, and Zonta SCV Foundation President, Lois Bauccio, with a generous and unsolicited contribution of $7,500!
ITT Aerospace, located on Industry Drive in Valencia near the Castaic Junction, is an international company with a heritage of innovation. As a response to the current need of our country to reach herd immunity against the Covid-19 virus, the company provided an incentive to its employees: when 75% of employees became vaccinated, one lucky employee’s name would be randomly selected for a $10,000 prize, and one community nonprofit organization would be selected to receive a symbolic donation of $7,500.
With that challenge, the Human Resources Department set about to find a nonprofit that would directly address the company’s most recent initiatives. After discovering both Zonta International and the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita Valley, Gabby Rodriguez and her team were excited to find the organization that matched the company’s initiatives for improving the lives of women. ITT Aerospace is concerned with issues of violence against women and girls including domestic violence, child marriage, sex trafficking, inequities in education and employment for girls and women, and more. In other words, the perfect fit for Zonta.
ITT Aerospace Site Manager, Davide Varze and General Manager, Steve Kim, proudly thanked their employees for enthusiastically participating in the successful competition and presented the “big check” to Nicole and Lois, as more than two dozen employees joined in the festivities. Colorful balloons and delicious Lady Di’s cookies and cupcakes rounded out the celebration.
Zonta SCV is deeply grateful for the opportunities made possible by the generous contribution which will support programs, scholarships, and grants for many deserving women.
