Angel Tree

The Angel Tree® was started in 1975 by the West Knoxville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) as a community service project to provide Christmas gifts for underprivileged children.  The Optimist Club of Knoxville has provided many volunteers through the years and as a result, thousands upon thousands of children in need across Tennessee receive gifts. Please visit the Angel Tree website for more information.

Fountain City Christmas Parade

The Optimist Club of Knoxville is a proud participant in the Fountain City Christmas Parade. Members enjoy walking in the parade and meeting other community members.
