Paying homage to military service persons, Z Force, and Legacy this month
As part of our sponsorship of Legacy, Zonte’s Footstep donates a proportion of each bottle of Z-Force sold to support the work of this wonderful organisation. Our mission. pursued with the same determination displayed by Z-Force, is to make this third only to Badge day as the largest fundraiser for Legacy South Australia.
We first began making the Z-Force Shiraz Petit Sirah in 2009 to honour the remarkable bravery of our lost brothers in the Z-Force unit of World War II. The release of our 2014 vintage of this wine will be the fourth release of this label. To this day, we have donated upwards of $10,000 to Legacy Adelaide from proceeds from Z-Force sales.
Did you know that Legacy Clubs...
- Protect the basic needs of individuals and families; advocates for entitlements, rights and benefits of individuals and families; assists families to cope with bereavement and helps people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.
- Provide care and support to the ‘Families’ of incapacitated and deceased veterans (Widows, Widowers, Children & Disabled Dependents). Legacy provides a range of social activities and essential services and supports these families through hardship, loss, grief, personal development and social inclusion. Legacy provides practical support such as help with education expenses and dental care for children and youth, holiday respite, home maintenance, assistance with utility bills, advice and assistance with claiming pensions, financial counselling, legal advice, advocacy and much, much, more. The youth support which Legacy provides is often critical and can make a real difference in the chances a young person has of a successful career and in life in general, chances which are often diminished by the loss of a parent.
Each year Legacy Clubs provide 16,000 day trips for widows,
Every year 350 children receive education support from Legacy and;
Every year Legacy assists 8,000 with help around the house with home maintenance visits
Adelaide Legacy alone supports over 6,500 families, but to do so they have to raise over 95% of their own funds. Little assistance is received from Government; most funds are raised from their own fundraising efforts conducting events, appeals and lotteries and from the generous support of loyal sponsors like us here at Zonte’s Footstep to help continue this great work.
