Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa #50 Invests in New Books for Free Bookmobile Shelves

Active 20-30 Santa Rosa #50

We are delighted to grow our partnership with the wonderful local Active 20-30 Club of Santa Rosa #50! Active 20-30 US & Canada provides young adults with an opportunity for personal growth, friendships and leadership development while improving the quality of life for the special needs children in their community. The Santa Rosa club dates back to 1929 and these young professionals do a great job of raising money and volunteering, with an emphasis on assisting low-income Santa Rosa and Windsor families. We have been honored to work with them on a number of special events that have reached out to provide kids with holiday parties, back-to-school supplies, and more.

The club has just made a substantial donation from their Youth Benevolence Fund (YBF) to help us buy new Spanish-language and bilingual books for our shelves, books which are always in high demand on our travels. The bilingual books in particular make it easy for all household members to participate in the crucial activity of reading to young children each day. They also help people of all ages who are learning English as a second language. Thank you, Active 20-30 Santa Rosa!
