Quota International of Mountain View/Los Altos held its annual awards luncheon May 17 at Michaels at Shoreline, celebrating members’ yearlong fundraising efforts that provide college scholarships and support community agencies offering assistance to the deaf and hard of hearing and to disadvantaged women and children.

Jocelyn Lopez received the Quota Roundtable Scholarship; Sandra Hernandez, the Terry Morris Scholarship; and Charles Oleand, the Eva Mockbee and Quota Club scholarships.

The club awarded grants to Canine Companions for Independence, the Community Health Awarness Council, Community Services Agency, Mountain View firefighters’ Create a Smile Fund, the Mountain View Police Activities League and the YWCA Silicon Valley Domestic Violence Department.

Roberta Jorgensen, the club’s director of service, recognized the Mountain View Kiwanis Club with a certificate of appreciation for its ongoing support of Quota’s Healthy Hearing Project, which educates parents and elementary school-age children about the hearing damage caused by exposure to loud noise.

Quota International, whose motto is “We Share,” has been active in Mountain View and Los Altos since 1948.
