TERRE HAUTE — Local Optimists have their hopes set on clothing needy children throughout the area once again.

The 78th Annual Noon Optimist Clothe-a-Child drive is under way, sponsored by the Terre Haute Super Walmart on U.S. 41 South. According to a media release issued by the organization, the group hopes to raise more than $45,000 to provide new clothing to 1,000 children in the Terre Haute area.

Noon Optimist Club members work with area teachers to determine which children are eligible to receive clothing. The children, depending on their needswill receive a new coat, hoodie, shirt, pants, socks and underwear. These children will meet on Saturday, December 15th at the southside Wal-Mart to be properly sized and outfitted.

The group’s annual “Clothe-A-Child” Auction will be hosted at the V.F.W. at 12th and Mulberry streets beginning at 7 p.m. on Dec. 4. Local businesses have donated hundreds of items for the auction.
