Azalea City Quota Club, Georgia, USA
Our Quota Cares Month project
In honor of “Quota Cares” Month, Azalea City Quota Club and Audibel Hearing Aid Centers teamed up to help a local Valdosta State University student get a hearing aid. Azalea City Quota Club has donated the proceeds of two local fundraisers to go towards the purchase of a hearing aid for a young lady named Megan. Megan has suffered from hearing loss in one ear since she was a baby and has always had problems with hearing and understanding, especially in noisy and large groups. She has always been able to get closer to the teachers in the school, but she knew college would be harder in the large lecture rooms and this is when her family decided to bring her to Audibel to see if a hearing aid would help her. Chris Youngblood is the hearing aid specialist at Audibel and a member of Azalea City Quota Club. The family was unable to fund the hearing aid and Chris knew that our club would step in and help and that’s just what we did! Megan is doing great with her hearing aid and is also doing great in her classes at VSU. She and her family are so grateful and we are excited and humbled to be used to give the gift of hearing to such deserving girl.
How did our QCM project benefit our community?
Our project raised awareness in our community. We were able to spread the word about our club and our mission as we did fundraising projects to help Megan. We also were covered in a local newspaper article for our project of helping Megan getting a hearing aid that will help her in school and in life.
How did our QCM project benefit our club / members?
Our project involved all of our members through fundraising events. We were all very involved. Members really took the project to heart and were able to see what being a Quota member is really all about. We grew closer as a club as we were able to give the gift of hearing to precious Megan!
