Quota International of Bath recently presented a donation in the amount of $250 to the Southeast Steuben County Library, Corning, in support of the library’s inductive hearing loop project, planned for the Laura Beer Community Room.

The hearing loop is a class of Assistive Listening Devices, which works with Telecoil equipped hearing aids and cochlear implants to help individuals attending events and functions in the Community Room hear better than they would with their own devices.

The loop is a wire which will circle the room, connect to the sound system and transmit electromagnetic signals to hearing aids and implants. These signals will be interpreted as sound to the individual.

Quota Club President Donna Gerych, said “we are pleased to donate to this project, not only because it is an important endeavor for the Southeast Library, but also because our Quota organization strives to provide services to the deaf, hard of hearing and/or speech impaired individuals, when the need arises.”

Organized in Buffalo, NY, in 1919, Quota International, Inc. is part of an international service organization which links its members of all ages to service work in helping others.
