The holidays "Tis the season to give"...and that's exactly what the
Active 20-30 Club of Bakersfield does best. The annual event, "Christmas
Experience" aims to provide each in-need family with toys and clothing
for every child, plus a one-hundred dollar food voucher and Christmas
tree. Annually the club raises over $35,000 for this event, which is
enough money to sponsor over 50 families totaling over 150 children each
year. After all of the funds are raised, the 20-30 Club teams up with
several other organizations to shop for, wrap and deliver the hundreds
of gifts to needy families in Kern County.
The Active 20-30 Club of Bakersfield was
founded in 1928. Our chapter is geared towards men in their 20's and
30's. The club's objective is to serve the underprivileged youth in our
community while developing leadership in young men.
Active 20-30 membership draws from all professions and is open to
everyone within the age qualifications. Our organization differs from
many other service organizations in that not only do we raise money for
needy children's charities, but also insist upon "hands-on" interaction.
This active participation serves to solidify our personal relationships
with those we serve, maintains motivation, and produces a high degree
of personal satisfaction.
We serve the children of Kern County through direct contributions in
excess of $100,000 annually. The distribution of these monies is voted
on by the board of directors. 100% of all funds go to charities;
absolutely no money goes toward administrative or overhead costs.
