Quarters for Quantum

August 17, 2011

Quarters for Quantum is a grass roots coin drive sponsored by Panera Bread that raises change to stock the food pantry for families at Quantum House.  The drive has grown significantly each year due to the support within the local community.  Last year Quarters raised more than $23,000 for families in need.  Local schools, businesses, and organizations can participate in Quarters for Quantum by collecting “quarters” or any form of currency in the canisters provided by Quantum House.


Quantum House will kick off this exciting campaign on Thursday, August 18th at Panera Bread Café on Village Boulevard in West Palm Beach (771 Village Boulevard, West Palm Beach, FL  33409).  All are invited to come from 4pm – 6pm to learn more about this special fundraising program, enjoy Panera Refreshments and pick up their 2011 Quarters for Quantum Canisters!

Top participants from Quarters for Quantum will have the opportunity to appear on live television during the Holiday Hope Drive with WPBF-TV 25 on December 6th-8th. During the telethon, a super-sized house shaped piggy bank will be filled with change from the drive. Become a part of this exciting coin drive now by contacting Quantum House at (561) 494-0515.  It is easy to participate, just pick up your canisters at Quantum House and return by December 2, 2011.  “We are honored to have the support of Quantum Foundation and so many partners in the community for this exciting grass roots fundraiser.  The change collected will make a difference for families staying at Quantum House,” stated Robi Jurney, Executive Director.
