Support TC Optimist Club Christmas Shopping

Be a part of making a difference for those in need at Christmas time!

Participating in a child’s shopping experience is a great way to teach the gift of giving. The kids team up with Optimist volunteers shop for family members, wrap presents and then visit with Santa.  It’s a fun day for everyone!

You are also encouraged to sponsor one or more children to make a difference in the lives of those in need at a very special time of year.
