Meridian Optimists deliver holiday food baskets

This year the Meridian Optimist Club prepared and delivered thirty food baskets to families in
the Meridian area. Together with schools in the Meridian School District they also collected hundreds of pounds of canned goods for the Meridian Food Bank.

The Meridian Optimist Club has prepared food baskets for more than twenty years. About ten years ago they began working with students in the schools to collect non-perishable items. All that is needed and more is collected in a short two week period.

The next project for club is their annual Christmas Tree Sales. It's a busy season for the Meridian Optimists.
