‘Zonta Says No’ with Rethreaded

Kim Younblood poses with the t-shirts collected as part of this month’s service project.

As part of this month’s service project, the Zonta Club of Marathon collected over 100 t-shirts to donate to Rethreaded. These t-shirt will be re-purposed and made into grace scarves, necklaces, earnings, bracelets, and more. Visit their website and shop their store: https://www.rethreaded.com/collections/

Rethreaded started with a simple idea and a strong passion from its founder, Kristin Keen. She began by forming relationships with women on the street and making prison visits and realized that the greatest need was for a safe, supportive work environment where the women could earn money while learning a skill and experiencing continued healing through community.

Their mission is to renew hope, reignite dreams and release potential for survivors of human trafficking locally and globally through business. They provide a second change at life through employment for survivors of human trafficking in Jacksonville, Florida. In addition, they also operate as a distribution company that sells products from like-minded businesses who also employ women who have found freedom from the sex trade. Through their Freedom Business Partners they have helped over 4,000 women.
