August is always a fun month for QIFC members as they enjoy the “end of summer” picnic at the home of Linda and Donn Hopkins.
The picnic was an opportunity for members to celebrate another successful summer of service and fundraising. Sharon Chilson, estate sale coordinator, reports that Quota earned the net sum of $834.00 during the recent August 25 and 26th estate sale. These funds will be donated to services and projects that assist those in need in our community. A special thank you to each member who participated in this sale. You truly are Awesome.
Loveland Youth Gardeners
Several QIFC members journeyed to Loveland to visit the Loveland Youth Gardeners, one of the recipients of QIFC funds. Mitzi Davis, group lead, expressed delight at seeing the teen participants selling produce from a new roadside stand. A recent story in the local newspaper, featuring the Loveland Youth Gardeners, brought residents of the community to the farm for their purchases of fresh produce. The students gave QIFC members a personal tour of the grounds. In addition to selling produce on their property, LYG also participates in providing fresh produce for low-income residents in their community through the “Plant a Row for the Hungry” program.
