Working Together Makes It Happen
Many hands made quick work of fall clean up at the yard of one of our long time members. With the additional help from two “Quotations” (husbands), Don Jaffee and Jack Warren, the yard’s leaves were cleared and grass mown in just a couple of hours. It was a quick two hours of “sharing” that made a difference for one of our own.
Quota Begins Preparations for the Holidays
QIFC purchased 80 teddy bears and lap blankets for preschoolers at Putnam Elementary School. The goodies will be delivered to the kids in time for Christmas. This has become a cherished tradition among Putnam students. The bears and blankets make occasional appearances at school on special days when students get to hang out with their blankets and bears and read.
Santa’s Quota helpers are busy preparing for the annual Project Self-Sufficiency Holiday Party to be held on Saturday December 16th. Many groups help with this party and Quota loves to be part of it. Our members will provide 600 cookies for children to decorate and take home. The day of the party, we will organize donated items and help children pick a special gift for their mom or dad. When the kids finish “shopping” they will then choose the wrapping and bow they want and a Quota wrapper will make a pretty package for each child to give to his or her parent. It is so fun to see how carefully they choose their gifts how happy they are to have a gift to give Mom or Dad.
Dinner meetings offer an opportunity to plan special events and celebrate successes.
