QI of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Our Quota Cares Month project
This year’s Deaf and Hard of Hearing Dance was held at a St Paul Minnesota High School and was attended by 80 students from around the state. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Minnesota youth community benefited not only from a $500 donation from QI of Minneapolis, but also from their energy and positivity. Our club wanted to make this year’s dance memorable, so in addition to their time, they provided a photographer to snap photos at the photo booth and do some journalistic shots throughout the evening. For their part, the students created their own special photo booth (a la “Mustache”). Many memories were shared both on the dance floor and via the Mustache photo booth.
How did our QCM project benefit our community?
Quota’s community awareness was increased within the DHH education community, students, parents and teachers. Our new members got to participate in this hands on project and we hope that our helping hand will bring in new members.
How did our QCM project benefit our club / members?
For the past seven years QI of Minneapolis has been supporting and volunteering at the dance. Our members like to participate in hands on projects and this dance has been a great vehicle to get all of our members involved at one time or another during the past seven years.We educate the public on what and who Quota and Quotarians stand for.
