Books for Babies

Comments

Representatives from the Quota Club of Estevan and Junior Quota Clubs presented books to representatives from St. Joseph's Hospital's maternity ward.

The Quota Club of Estevan marked Quota International's 95th birthday on February 6 by making several presentations in the community.

Representatives from the Quota club, the three Junior Quota clubs in Estevan, the Me to We Club at Hillcrest School and the Estevan Comprehensive School''s social justice club presented about 80 children's books to the maternity ward at St. Joseph's Hospital.

The donation came through Quota's Books for Babies program, and they will be handed out to all of the babies born at the hospital in February, and into March until the book supplies are exhausted.

“Our goal is to help parents understand the critical connection between verbal stimulation, language development and future literacy, and how they can help their babies learn,” the Quota club stated in a press release.

“Our message is that by reading with and talking to children, beginning at birth, parents can help their youngsters develop the early literacy skills they will need to succeed in school, and in life.”

Quota also presented two FM sound systems – one to the Estevan Regional Nursing Home and the other two Creighton Lodge – as part of Quota International's birthday.
