Members of the Ozark Optimist Club recently donated $250 to Ozark nonprofit Care to Learn.

“The key focus of an Optimist Club is to make the future brighter by bringing out the best in children within the communities each club serves,” Ozark Optimist Club President Michaele Vetsch-Floyd said. “By meeting the immediate needs of children, it will provide a better opportunity to build confidence and create a better path for the future.”

Ozark Care to Learn Director Michelle Lindsey said the club’s donation will go toward buying a bed for one student who’s been sleeping on the floor and ADHD medication for another to help the student do well in school.

“Area organizations are an integral part of our ability to provide for students, and we would not be able to do what we do without them,” Lindsey said. “We know we can count on them to raise significant funds to help us meet our expenses, but they bring so much more to the table — they share our mission with others and provide a significant source of volunteers.”
