Santa’s sleigh is on its way

The Exchange Club of Sugar Land, Sugar Land Rotary, The Exchange Club of Fort Bend and Toys for Tots have partnered to provide toys for over 5,000 children this Christmas. Project coordinators pictured are (l-r) Kevin Barker, John Robson, Greg Oelfke, Ward Pendleton, Greg Pendley, Chip Smith, Farha Ahmed, Carolyn Tarver and Katina Scott.

Santa’s Exchange is a joint community service project of The Exchange Club of Sugar Land, Sugar Land Rotary, The Exchange Club of Fort Bend and Toys for Tots. This year 5,000 children will receive Christmas gifts through the efforts of Community Service Clubs, businesses, churches and schools that collect gifts for the children.

Parents in need are sent an invitation to visit Santa’s Exchange and “shop” for three new toys for each child. The kids have a chance to sit on Santa’s lap and “elves” entertain them with crafts and games. Traditionally over 1,000 volunteers from local community service clubs, high schools and churches assist on the day of the project.

If you would like to help by putting a toy collection box at your place of business/church or make a donation, please email santa@ecsl.org.
