LETTER: Exchange Club Of Highline Would Like To Thank The Community
We would again like to thank the community for their support of the Exchange Club of Highline!
Thanks to the generosity of donors and attendees at our January auction, we will be able to support even more community organizations than ever. In our upcoming budget year, we have committed more than $54,000 to local groups and organizations. The complete list can be found on our website www.exchangeclubofhighline.com. Without help, this would not be possible. Thanks again!
But the Club’s community support doesn’t end with monetary donations. Our Club members take a hands-on approach to helping. Members were out in force at our recent toilet paper drive at the 5-Corners Albertson’s. With donations and Club support, we got more than 9,000 rolls of toilet paper to be given to our three area food banks — Des Moines, Highline and White Center.
Twice a year we gather and box up care packages for our troops in Afghanistan. Our most recent packages were at the request of the troops. They wanted their “home away from home” to have more of a holiday feeling. So this last November we gathered Christmas decorations such as lights, garlands and candy canes and sent them off. We have gotten thank you letters back with pictures of the decorations. They were much appreciated. We will have more care packages of supplies and snacks to be sent soon.
With the start of school in the fall, many students cannot afford backpacks or school supplies. Over the summer we will be purchasing more than 500 backpacks and filling them with school supplies for our area school children.
If you’d like to join us, we would love to have you as a member! If you would like more information, you can contact us at [email protected].
Thank you so much for helping us help the community!
