Santa Claus will make a special appearance on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children visiting during this time can also take home a free book as a part of the Quota Club’s Cops ‘N Kids Program, which is held in partnership with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office and Salisbury City Police.

The Christmas Gift and Craft Show serves as the Quota International of Salisbury’s annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the event are used to serve the local community, with a focus on the deaf, hearing impaired, speech impaired as well as disadvantaged women and children. The Quota Club has launched several programs to improve local literacy levels in partnership with area police and schools. Through their ‘Court Kids Program,’ children in the local foster system are given basic necessities as well as items of comfort such as blankets, toys and stuffed animals. On an annual basis, four Wicomico County high school graduates receive scholarships from the Quota Club and one student is given a two year scholarship for Wor-Wic Community College. In addition to these programs, the Quota Club grants financial support to over 20 local non-profits including Coastal Hospice, the Salvation Army and the United Way.
