"A Man Never Stands So Tall As When Kneeling To Help A Child"

Christmas Experience

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.

Christmas includes:
  • $100 in gifts per child
  • Christmas Tree with ornaments (1 per family)
  • $100 grocery gift certificates (1 per family)
Eligibility Requirements:
  • Children in the family must be under 18 years of age
  • The Family should have a significant financial need
  • The Family must be located within Kern County

Every December, the Bakersfield Active 20-30 Club hosts its Annual Christmas Experience; a community service project that spreads hope and holiday cheer by providing Christmas to underprivileged children in Kern County.

Each year, through the assistance and generosity of the people and businesses in the community, our Christmas Experience touches the lives of more than 50 families and over 200 children. This year, our goal is to continue in that same tradition—and we need your help. I am inviting you to join us as a sponsor for Christmas Experience either through donation, or as a volunteer.

Donations may be made via any Club Member or mailed to the clubs P.O. Box.

"Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Because of your help my son and myself were able to celebrate this past Christmas with a tree and the wonderful presents you provided us. I am extremely thankful and blessed and will always remember the very special way you helped me when I was down to help give my little guy a Christmas to remember.  Thank you, Laura and Gabriel Deatherage"

Thank you letter:
