Optimist Day 2021

In celebration of Optimist Day this year, the Tucker Optimist club chose to prepare and donate 50 Suitcases of Love for Foster Children to Wellroot Family Services in Tucker, GA. Members of the club gathered on the Saturday before Optimist Day to organize the bags and contents. A soft blanket, a keychain emoji, and a luggage tag were added to each duffle bag. The luggage tag contained a blank card so the child could personalize their tag. Delivery of the bags was on Thursday, February 4th, Optimist Day.

Thank you to all the club members for this project!

Smart Lunch/Smart Kids

Members of the Tucker Optimist Club volunteered this summer to help prepare lunches for area children who participate in the school lunch program. Each time we helped make sack lunches for 200 to 250 children.  One of the times we helped was in conjunction with the Tucker Civic Association (TCA), the other two times with a neighborhood group. The picture is from the TCA event.

Our club worked with the Tucker Civic Association to clean up the South Fork Peachtree Creek.  It was a cool, brisk day for the volunteers who came to clean up the area.  The volunteers were divided into two groups to cover the area.  Over 65 tires were collected, a couch, shopping carts, golf club 5 iron, a recliner, a lobster trap (are there lobsters in South Fork Peachtree Creek???) and lots of trash!
