Members of the Exchange Club of Fort Bend were busy at work serving dinner to 170 children who were enjoying a week at Champions Kids Camp in Alvin, Texas.  Champions Kids Camp was the brainchild of Nashville singer songwriter, Bill Nash, who started the camp 13 years ago after his own son survived leukemia.

The camp is dedicated to the nurturing children who have survived a traumatic injury, illness, or personal loss, such as the loss of a parent or sibling.  The goal is to instill a sense of pride and help each child know that they are not a victim but a survivor and therefore, a Champion!  Exchange Clubs throughout the Houston area volunteer to serve meals, become dorm moms and dads and donate funds to ensure that every camper has a great time at camp.

The Exchange Club of Fort Bend is a group of men and women who promote programs to “give back” to our local community, and recognize people who strive to make our community a better place to live and work.  If you would like to learn more about the Exchange Club of Fort Bend “America’s Service Club” visit  www.fortbendexchange.org.
