RBC Volunteer of the Year
Ralph Bunche Center
Volunteer of the Year Award 2015-2016
The members of the Laurel Canyon Optimist Club are wonderful and caring people!! They go ABOVE AND BEYOND!! They really care about the children at Ralph Bunche. The Laurel Canyon Optimist Club has been working with Ralph Bunche for 4 years. They have provided books for our library, sent volunteers to help children build projects on Male Involvement Day, provided teachers’ luncheons and assisted in building a pergola and garden in remembrance of a deceased Ralph Bunche student.
This year, the group is assisting in building an adaptive playground for the special needs students at Ralph Bunche, along with supplying innovative technology based math materials.
The Optimist Club not only provides monetary support to the students and teachers at Ralph Bunche, but they offer their personal time and energy, too. The males assist students in building special projects and the females prepare a special story time for the students each month. Ralph Bunche Center loves the Soleil Optimist Club!
