QI of Coral Springs-Parkland, Florida, U.S.A.

“Raised funds for Highpoint Industries (a sheltered workshop) over a number of years through various activities such as Elvis Nights, race days, craft fairs, etc. We have provided ergonomic chairs, special phones for the main switchboard, and other equipment required.

PARTNERSHIPS: Service

QI of Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia

We provided mentoring and provided the girls with information on finances, hygiene training, etiquette when dining out, social graces, and more.
