Quota International of Bossier City donated $500 to Operation Blessing and $250 to “We’ve Got Your Back” to support Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington and the Bossier Sheriff’s Office during a luncheon at Ralph & Kacoo’s Restaurant Monday.  The non-profit organization also presented $650 to Plantation Elementary School and $350 to Bossier Elementary School for birthday books for the students.

“What Quota International does in donating funds to the Sheriff’s Office and Operation Blessing is humbling and very appreciative,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.  “Then to have the staff of the restaurant give from their own wallets when they see the great things Quota International does…that’s what makes Bossier Parish an outstanding place to call home.  People helping people.”

The staff of Ralph & Kacoo’s in Bossier City made a special $100 donation to Quota International of Bossier City recently after they heard about the wonderful things the organization is doing for the community.  Quota International meets twice a month at the restaurant, and the staff decided through their “Good Works, Great Food” initiative to donate to the organization.

The mission of the Quota International is to empower women, children, the deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired.  They also provides scholarships to six qualifying graduate students and support two daycare center projects in the Philippines, among others.  If you would like to become a member of the Quota Club of Bossier City or learn more about their organization, contact Jeanette Edmiston at 458-3741 or je@jsturner.com.
