How did I not know about this amazing organisation?
I have come to the conclusion after meeting the amazing team at Quota that they are one of Toowoomba’s unsung heroes – unassuming, hardworking and just going about their business – helping others every day.
Quota is an international organisation that was founded in 1919 by a Buffalo, New York business woman Wanda Frey Joiner. And why you may ask? She realised that women have a tremendous contribution to make to their communities – and contribute they certainly do.
Some of their Toowoomba Community Projects include:
- Hear and Say Centre – hearing impaired children & parents in Toowoomba
- Manna House Women’s Refuge – food and housing for abused and/or homeless women & children
- Agoonoree – support for disabled scouts and guides to attend camps
- Life Flight bears and QAS Care Bears
- QuoCKa reading programs
Quota Toowoomba offers friendship, fellowship, fun and the opportunity to make a positive difference to others in our local community. This is such a beautiful organisation making our community and the people who live here all that bit stronger.
