Cocoa Beach Optimist Club
- NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
Optimist Clubs are dedicated to ''Bringing Out the Best in Kids'' and do their part through community service programs. Since each Club is autonomous and run by members in their community, Optimists have the unique flexibility to serve the youth of their area in any way they see fit. Optimist Clubs see a need in their community and react to it.
Optimists conduct 65,000 community service projects each year, spending $78 million in their communities. Annually, six million kids are positively affected by Optimist programs.
Past Community Involvement includes:
Distributing over 30 complete Thanksgiving meals to needy families in the Central Brevard area, Benefiting MILA Elementary's Holiday Celebration for special needs students, being a key sponsor for the 16th Annual Great Brevard Duck Race which is a major fundraiser for Crosswinds Youth Services, and the Great Optimist Fishout which is a catch and release fishing contest help free of charge at Port Canaveral for over 25 years!
