THE Maryborough Quota Club has donated $1500 to Maryborough Act for Kids. This money is half the proceeds of the Club's recent Pre-Easter Tombola. Caterina Schulz from Act for Kids said that she was overwhelmed with such a large donation, which will be used for equipment for the playgroup the organisation runs.

Quota choose to donate to Act for Kids, because they provide prevention, early intervention, and therapeutic programs to children who have been abused or are at risk of abuse or neglect. Quota feels that there is a real need for this service in Maryborough, and wants to do all that they can to protect the lives of our precious children. Act for Kids operates from their premises at 111 Cheapside Street, Maryborough.

Quota is a women's Service Club, that has been helping the community of this area for 54 years. If you wish to know more about Quota , please phone Gladys on 41214363.
