Quota International of Cupertino, CA

Beatrix Lopez learned the value of volunteering when she joined the staff of Girl Scouts of America as a young woman. Twenty years later she is still active with the Girl Scouts as well as a horde of other volunteer activities. Bea is on the board of the San Mateo County “Women’s Recovery Association,” helping fund programs for women recovering from substance abuse. She is also the executive director for Social Advocates for Youth (S.A.Y.), an agency providing shelter and services for at-risk youth. A Quotarian for less than two years, Bea has been actively participating to make a difference. She particularly enjoys the club’s “Christmas Shopping Day” with low-income children as a time of sharing and giving. Bea currently serves as club treasurer and will take on the same position next term, too.
