This year, the Gulf Breeze Optimist Club participated in the annual Gulf Breeze Christmas parade. They decorated their float in a Toys for Tots theme in order to bring attention to the charity. The Optimist Club also collaborated with local Marine Corp members and had six volunteers walk alongside their float. In addition to decorating their float, in the Toys for Tots theme, they are also holding a toy drive to donate to Toys for Tots.

Young Democrats Club does annual change drive

The Gulf Breeze High School Young Democrats Club carried out their annual change for the Homeless change collection. During the week before exams, the students made an announcement at lunch time that they were doing a collection. Then, members of the club went around during all three lunches collecting any spare change that students have. In years past, the club has raised hundreds of dollars all for homeless individuals and the Waterfront Mission Center.
