QI of Monrovia-Duarte, California, USA
Our Quota Cares Month project
In March, our Quota Club launched the It’s a Noisy Planet “Listen Up, Turn it Down” project at Bradoaks Elementary School, one of our five elementary schools in Monrovia. The benefit to the community is to prevent hearing loss in children which is irreparable by excessive, loud noise. This project will reach approximately 100 students as well as their parents, which will educate them also in avoiding hazardous noises. A second elementary school is in the wings to begin the project for its third grade students.
How did our QCM project benefit our community?
The Monrovia Superindent of Schools met with the five elementary school principals for volunteers for the program and to explain Quota’s objectives. An article regarding the project appeared in the April issue of “Monrovia Today” which is a collaboration between the Monrovia Unified School District and the City of Monrovia. This magazine is published quarterly and is mailed to all households in the City of Monrovia. It is too early to determine if we are to attract new members, but it is our goal to do so. We will attend a special assembly this month for students and parents at Bradoaks Elementary School and promote membership in our club to those in attendance.
How did our QCM project benefit our club / members?
The project brings awareness to the community of the objectives of Quota. Members were excited about the project. One of our newest members chaired the Committee to bring this to a reality. She engaged her Committee\’s assistance in collecting materials from Quota International, meeting with the Superintendent of Schools, and preparing all the necessary packets for the lauching of the project. The Club is delighted to be a part of this tremendous project.
