The Active 20-30 Children’s Shopping Spree has been our national project for many years and is a favorite of members. Annually, each club takes a group of local children back-to-school shopping, stocking their carts with $100 or more of clothes, shoes and personal items. In addition, the kids are given a backpack full of age-appropriate school supplies to get them started on a path of learning.
In Eugene, we partner with Valley River Center and offer a fun day of shopping, pizza, and ice cream every August. We work with many different organizations around town including Courageous Kids, Ophelia’s Place and Kids’ FIRST to benefit with children right here in Lane County. In the weeks leading up to the event our club hosts a school supply drive so we can send each child home with a full backpack to start off the year!
