The Redwood Empire Active 20-30 Club #1029 is a non-profit, 501-(c)3 charity that works within Sonoma County to provide both hands-on volunteer and financial support to non-profit agencies that serve disadvantaged children. Since the year 2000, we have donated over $230,000 to local charities. We created this scholarship award for female high school seniors residing in and attending a school in Sonoma County, who have demonstrated a strong commitment to volunteerism in our community. Scholarships are awarded based on volunteer service, exemplification of our club’s values, and financial need.
