Community Service is the cornerstone of Exchange. Our members dedicate their time to supporting community events such as Maize Days and Christmas in the Park, as well as school-based events like Murphy Middle School's Color Run. We actively support our Police and Fire Departments with donated equipment that help them perform their jobs easier or safer. Every year, we participate in a coat drive that supports local shelters.
Makers & Thinkers
The Exchange Club will act as a Project Management Office to facilitate the opportunity for adults and students to work together to develop STEAM-based projects. Rather than being a true "after-school" program, Makers & Thinkers is expected to provide kids with another avenue for inquisitive minds to tap into creative projects. We expect to launch this program in 2018.
Support for Police & Fire
The Club donated a specially-equipped police bicycle for patrolling special events, and a safety bench that allows officers to secure suspects safely within the interrogation & booking room. The Murphy Fire Department was recently the recipient of an automated external defibrillator (AED), training mannequins, and statpacks for medics.
Coats for Kids
Each year, the Exchange Club collects Coats for Kids (and adults!). Our collection bins can be found across the City in businesses that support our efforts, such as our local UPS and Keller Williams offices. At the end of the coat drive, our members separate the coats and winter accessories, and split up donations among local shelters, the Salvation Army, and the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County.
