SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The Exchange Club of San Clemente has donated $3,000 to three local nonprofits focused on child abuse prevention.
“Not only is this something our club cares deeply about, but child abuse prevention is also the national call to arms for over 60,000 Exchange Club members nationwide,” said Chad Schiel, a spokesperson for the Exchange Club, in a press release. Exchange Club President Ken Wakefield presented checks to Community Outreach Alliance to fund its new fishing activities for underprivileged kids. Recipients also included the Raise Foundation, for its continued work of child abuse prevention, and the San Clemente Domestic Violence Task Force, to prevent domestic and child violence.
The club’s next big fundraising event is the Semper Fi Golf Tournament, an annual event held to benefit U.S. Marines. This year the tournament will take place at Talega Golf Club in San Clemente. Organizers are now filling teams and seeking local businesses that would like to help sponsor the event. For more information, visit exchangeclubsc.org.
