Quota International Coolum Beach
Quota International was founded in America after World War One as a service club for women on 6 February 1919. The organisation now operates in fourteen countries. It was the first women’s club creating an organisation that would be international in scope, embracing members regardless of geographic location. Quota Coolum Beach was chartered in July,1995. Coolum Quota members share the values of serving and encouraging others, developing friendships, and promoting world service. We are a group of women from diverse backgrounds, sharing a common desire to volunteer their time to create projects which make an impact in our local community. Quota Coolum supports the hearing and speech impaired, the disabled, the disadvantaged and abused women and children. We raise funds through fashion parades, sausage sizzles, high teas, basket auctions, fashion parades, morning teas, car-boot sales and raffles. We are always looking for new ideas on how to raise funds. Some of the organisations we support are S.T.E.M.M, Hear and Say Nambour, Riding for the Disabled, Salvation Army Emergency Housing and St Vincent de Paul, Program Connect and Chappy’s breakfast, Coolum RSL club, Coolum HeARTs and the list is growing each year. The club is hands on and likes to visit these organisations several times a year if possible and this is such a rewarding experience and in some cases very emotional. Our club also leads a very active social life with coffee mornings, lunches, movies, picnics, market days, shopping days, family outings, themed nights, BBQ's ,the theatre and more. Quota Coolum Beach meets at the Meals on Wheels rooms in Santa Monica Ave Coolum Beach on the second Tuesday of the month from February through to the end of September.
