The Sedona Car Club participates in the ADOT Litter Lifter Program and is responsible for cleaning
a one mile stretch of Highway 89A. Three times a year an intrepid group of volunteers get out there to do
their part. Their reward is the satisfaction of helping to keep roads in one of the most beautiful areas of the country
clean and to receive a free breakfast at one of Sedona's distinguished eateries.
In addition, the club has been fortunate in past years to financially contribute to a number of worthy
charities and organizations in the local area. Organizations that have benefitted from contributions in the past
include The Sedona Food Bank and The Sedona Community Foundation.
