Quota Club Awards Local Grants
Quota International of Great Town, a local service organization, recently disbursed $6,000 in grants, primarily to groups serving the metropolitan community.
The Quota club provided $2,200 for medical equipment and supplies at the Great Town Community Clinic, which offers low cost medical and dental services to individuals with low incomes.
The group also awarded $2,200 to the Deaf School of Anywhere to purchase software for its newly installed computer network system and library resources.
Other local grants included: $600 to Community Service Organization for video equipment intended to increase local awareness of its services to promote literacy, prevent homelessness, and meet the needs of low-income families; and $200 to Crisis Nursery for supplies.
An additional $800 grant was sent to Quota International of Cebu in metropolitan Manila, Philippines, to further that club’s work at a day care center for disadvantaged children. The money will provide meals and health care services, such as de-worming, vitamin supplements, and medical and dental check-ups.
The grant to Cebu is part of Quota International’s Club to Club project, which allows clubs in 13 countries to assist clubs in third-world nations with worthwhile local service projects. Projects similar to the one in Cebu are located in Suriname, Fiji, India, and other Philippine communities.
Founded in 1919, Quota International is a non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian service organization dedicated to making a difference locally and globally. Following their motto, “We Share,” Quotarians focus service on helping deaf, hard of hearing and speech-impaired individuals, and disadvantaged women and children.
