This is a post specifically for my friends and readers in Eugene, OR. My sister and brother-in-law live in Eugene and are volunteers through a great organization called the Eugene Active 20-30 Club (the local affiliate of an international organization).
The club is dedicated to serving children in their local community. One of the annual events they put together is called Kid Spree. Before school starts up again in the fall, they take less fortunate kids shopping for clothes and school necessities. Each child gets a $100 gift card is is accompanied on their shopping trip with a Eugene Active 20-30 volunteer and a member of the Eugene Em's baseball team!
In past years they have supported 25 kids. This year their efforts have raised enough money so far to support 17 children.
Would you or your business be interested in supporting a child in your community? If you are interested, drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or visit the club's web site at http://www.eugene2030.org.
