Past Projects You Might Remember Us From
Christmas Tree Pick Up
For over thirty years, the Eugene Active 20-30 Club partnered with Gray’s Garden Centers, Rexius, and SaniPac to provide Christmas tree pick-up service to the residents of Eugene and Springfield. Rexius sponsored the event by donating disposal of the trees in their recycling program and SaniPac provided a dumpster for flocked trees which cannot be recycled. This fundraiser was held the first two weekends of January for a suggested donation of $7 and helped the Club raise thousands of dollars each year for the local community.
OSAA 5a Basketball Ushering
The Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) and the Eugene Active 20-30 club joined together for decades to raise money for local children’s charities. We received this opportunity by ushering the 5A Boys and Girls Basketball championship. Our Club has been involved extensively with the OSAA tournaments dating back to the 1950s. This project provided members the opportunity for fellowship with other club members while raising money to help underprivileged children in their community.
EMS Concession Stand
Civic Stadium was not only home to the Eugene Emeralds for many years, but also the Eugene Active 20-30 Club. Our concession stand at the old baseball stadium provided members the opportunity to grow their leadership and teamwork skills as well as raise a substantial amount of money to help support local children s charities.
U of O Basketball Ushering
Volunteers with the Eugene Active 20-30 Club partnered with the University of Oregon while Mac Court was home to Duck Basketball. Our members and other volunteers wore their famous red jackets and stood in the tunnels directing traffic before and during the home games. This project provide members the opportunity to fellowship before and after their shifts while providing the Club with a large source of income. We will always remember our time at Mac Court with fond memories and hope to continue our relationship with the University of Oregon at Matt Court in another capacity.
