The newly established Optimist Club of Devils Lake, whose mission is to help the children in the community, started “School Supplies Project” to help children get the school supplies they need for this school year.

The club placed blue boxes at Sears, Gate City Bank, Western State Bank, Ramsey Bank and Western Equipment Finance so people could help donate. Then the supplies were collected and distributed to several children in mid-September.

The Optimist Club’s mission is “providing hope and positive vision. Optimists bring out the best in youth, our communities and ourselves.” The club meets the first and third Thursdays of the month at the City Plaza Meeting Room.
