Quota of Northampton is again accepting contributions of either new, unwrapped gifts of your own choosing or a financial donation for our club's "elves" to shop with so that less-fortunate children in the community can enjoy Christmas.

The club will also operate a Christmas store for young clients of the Northampton Area Food Bank on Saturday, Dec. 7. Each child will be able to pick out a gift for every family member at no charge. In addition to gifts for children, the club is also looking for small gifts for adults and siblings.

Last year, Quota helped more than 40 children in the Northampton Area School District have a wonderful holiday through the generous donations of individuals and local businesses.

To arrange a gift or donation drop-off or pick-up, call Judy Egge at 610-264-9786; email Marian Opresko at marjer8@gmail.com; or fax Nikol Tews at 610-262-3037.
