Exchange Club Announces Grants to Local Charities

The Board of Directors of the Quincy Exchange Club are proud to announce two recent contributions to local charities. A grant of $5,000 was made to Cornerstone Foundation for Families to assist in the prevention of child abuse in the Quincy area. Since 1979, child abuse prevention has been the National Project of the Exchange Club. In that time, more than 700,000 families and 1.75 million children have been assisted by Exchange Clubs across the United States. By partnering with local organizations, such as Cornerstone, Exchange strives to create a safer environment for our at-risk children by using effective prevention strategies to eliminate child abuse in our community.

The Quincy Exchange Club also made a $500 contribution to the Quincy Area Alzheimer’s Association for the 2016 Walk to End Alzheimer’s event on September 10. Many of us have family or have known individuals with Alzheimer’s, including some of our former members, so our contribution to this endeavor was a natural fit.

These are just the latest┬ácontributions made to the community during the year to make Quincy a better place to live, work and play. Our contributions are made possible by the generous contributions to our major fundraising efforts – the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, our Flags of Honor program and the Believe in the Blue campaign.
