Mak­ing a dif­fer­ence with Coffs Quota Club

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - ADVERTISING FEATURE CLASSES & TUITION -

QUOTA In­ter­na­tional is a non-profit world­wide or­gan­i­sa­tion em­pow­er­ing women, chil­dren, the deaf, hard of hear­ing and speech im­paired to over­come poverty, ed­u­ca­tional and work­force chal­lenges.

Our motto is “We Change Lives”.

Coffs Quota has been a dy­namic force in the vol­un­teer­ing com­mu­nity since 1962 en­joy­ing fundrais­ing and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties, which con­nect us to Quota Clubs world­wide and to our lo­cal com­mu­nity.

The deaf but­ter­fly is one of Quota’s sym­bols so it fol­lows that we as­sist a lo­cal Deaf Camp.

Lo­cal do­na­tions over the past 12 months in­cluded swim­ming lessons for spe­cial needs stu­dents, mas­tec­tomy cush­ions for breast can­cer pa­tients, school awards, lo­cal char­i­ties, pro­vid­ing anti-bul­ly­ing pro­grammes at sec­ondary schools and SCU and Eisteddfod schol­ar­ships.

An­nual com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in­cludes sup­ply­ing morn­ing teas at Shear­wa­ter Lodge on a ros­ter ba­sis and cre­at­ing about 600 Mother’s Day posies for lo­cal nurs­ing homes, An­tique Fair (23-year­sold) and Christ­mas Wrap­ping in Park Beach Plaza.
