Our mission is “Bringing Out the Best in Kids” and to do accomplish this, we do several fundraisers throughout the year. The Downtown Optimist club is committed, now more than ever, to serving the youth of our community. When you purchase any of our items, you help support that same commitment, too. In the last 5 years, we have provided approximately $235,000 in support of youth in our community. Here is a list of the projects and organizations we have provided funding for in the recent past.
