Cops ‘n Kids

Cops'n KidsIn more than 70 communities,
Cops ‘n Kids provides children with access to literature, while also helping police officers develop positive relationships with members of the community. It is the mission of Cops ‘n Kids to invest in all children through the power of reading, while providing a positive learning environment.

Tens of thousands of books have been distributed to kids, classrooms, libraries and community centers.

  • For the children, they get to take home a book of their very own while interacting and building friendships with volunteers.

  • For the community volunteers, they are given the satisfaction of contributing to a new world for their local children through the magic of a new book.

  • For police officers, they are given a unique safe space to interact with and educate children on their role in the community.

New programs are starting, you can help launch Cops ‘n Kids programs through collecting books, reading in classrooms, or getting involved in one of the other ways, it is an opportunity to positively change the lives of local children, in ways only imagination through reading can.

Buckets of Love

Buckets of LoveBuckets of Love is an on-going initiative by Quotarians that directly benefits women and children who have been victims of domestic violence. 

Quota International, Inc. is partnered with the Combined Women's Refuge Group at the Quota International 2016 convention to support Women's Shelters for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

The recipients of the Buckets of Love are clients of this service group. Two representatives of the Combined Women’s Refuge Group attended the session on Sunday morning to receive the Buckets of Love and to share about their work.

Quota International Clubs and or individual members are supported this project by providing:

  • women’s night wear such as dressing gown or pajamas

  • Children’s pajamas – including teenager sizes

  • Books, games, puzzles for children

  • Diaries / Journals

  • Gift Cards for women to use to help them with more urgent needs when they first arrive at a refuge or center

Let’s continue to make the Buckets of Love project a project that will empower women and children at a time when they need support the most.
