Optimist Clubs help other organizations make a difference

Around the world, Optimist Clubs are united as friends of youth and they share the uplifting mission "By providing hope and positive vision, Optimists bring out the best in kids." Some popular programs include oratorical and essay scholarship contests, youth appreciation awards, tri-star sports, respect for law, youth safety and the Optimist Junior Golf Championships.

But at home, in local communities, Optimist Clubs also provide support to other organizations. Here are some of the great contributions that are being made by our clubs this month:

The Optimist Club of Carlsbad, CA and the Optimist Club of Del Mar, CA will combine forces to feed 1,000 Special Olympians on May 30.

The Optimist Club of Huntington, W. Virginia shares volunteers with the Boys and Girls Club.

The Optimist Club of Yuma, AZ will raise funds for the Boys & Girls Club summer youth programs with the 31st annual Continental Night on May 15.

The Optimist Club of Gresham, OR coordinated a walkathon for all youth serving organizations in their community.

The Optimist Club of Lapeer County, MI supports Lapeer East and West High Schools by raising more than $100,000 for soccer fields.
