A Multi-funded Non-Profit Agency
The Richmond-Perrine Optimist Club has served the youth, the poor, the elderly, the unemployed and disadvantaged in south Miami-Dade County for over 30 years.
The Organization was founded in 1971 by a group of concerned residents of the Richmond Height/Perrine area over the lack of organized sports and other activities for youth that were being provided in other communities. Out of this concern a group of dedicated residents came together and volunteered their time to form and nurture this organization. The organization initially began as a sports development program, which branched out in all kinds of civic and social activities in the South Miami-Dade Community.
Since 1971 we have provided a multitude of services from Pop Warner Football and cheerleading, Basketball, Baseball, Youth Counseling and Guidance Programs. Work Experience and Job Opportunities, Paint-Up/Fix Up services to the homes of the elderly, Summer Camps, Community Gardens for Senior citizens, Surplus Food and Clothing to the needy, Tutoring Services, Employability Skills Training classes, Oratorical Contests, Scholarships and others. The list of services and activities provided by the Richmond-Perrine Optimist Club seems endless. None of this would have been possible without the dedication and endless hours of hard work by the Agency's staff, Board of Directors and volunteers.
In order for us to continue to provide our youngsters with quality sports activities, we annually solicit financial resources from reputable organizations and concerned persons such as yourself to continue this portion of our services. We have a 501-3C non-profit status; therefore, financial contributions are completely tax deductible. Please accept this letter as our request for financial assistance in this area.
