December 21st: Christmas Gifts & Baskets will be given out 6pm until Santa runs out. All hands are needed and welcome to join us for lots of fun.

Members of the Optimist Club assemble and deliver food baskets to families in need.  The baskets include food for a complete Christmas dinner.  The Mechanicsville Optimist club also gets the names of a few needy families in St. Mary’s and uses their personal funds to provide gifts for the families.

 “We are proud to serve the children and families of our county and fortunate to be able to step up to help those in need.”

Families receiving the baskets were referred to the Optimist club by Department of Social Services of St. Mary’s County.
