North Bay Civitan Club of D'Iberville-St. Martin, Inc.
The mission of Civitan worldwide is to build good citizenship through a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.
Our club supports this mission through our annual and miscellaneous service projects.
Our Club coordinates a teddy bear drive-thru known as Teddy Bears on Patrol, which benefits local law enforcement agency(ies) who use the collected and tagged teddy bears to comfort youth involved in unexpected emergency situations.
We also hold an annual food drive & bridge run known as te Gobble Wobble each Saturday before November, which benefits a hunger need during the busy holiday season at The Lord is My Help in Ocean Springs, a local soup kitchen and food pantry.
During the Easter season, our members along with several community agencies and volunteers host our annual Civitan Special Needs Family Egg Hunt, which benefits youth with special needs and their immediate family members.
And, our club sponsors the CiviSTAR good citizenship awards recognition of local high school student leaders who are taking action responsibly in their schools, the community, and/or for people with disabilities.
Our club accepts membership applications for adults age 18+ who have good character and looking for leadership growth and enjoy fellowship and knowledge learning with other like-minded individuals working as a team!
