Child Abuse Prevention
Through the proceeds of the annual holiday crab feed/auction in December, the club has donated over $500,000 to support the programs and services of Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Children’s Home Society and Spokane Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Center.
The club annually donates and distributes thousands of flags to children along the Children’s Lilac Festival, ValleyFest and other community parade routes.
The club recognizes youth in our schools for citizenship, achievement and volunteerism. The Exchange Club of Spokane Foundation annually awards two college scholarships at Lewis and Clark and Central Valley High Schools. The overall winner of the Youth of the Year award advances to District and National competition. Four college scholarships are annually awarded to students who have turned their lives around through programs at local alternative high schools. The overall winner advances to District and National competition. The Young Citizenship Award honors students from five elementary schools for school involvement and volunteering!
