Quota seeks gift donations

Quota of Northampton is again accepting contributions of either new, unwrapped gifts of your own choosing or a financial donation for its "elves" to shop 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 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.
