AUBURN – The Auburn Exchange Club has made a $1,500 donation to the Tri-County Foster and Adoptive Association to help fund the annual Christmas party.

The group supports foster and adoptive families in the tri-county area and furnishes opportunities for siblings in foster care to meet and have time together.

The party, which will be held on Saturday, Dec. 11, will serve about 150 children from ages 1 to 18. The party, with visits by Santa and Mrs. Claus, will provide lunch, entertainment and a gift for the children.

The association is dedicated to helping abused and neglected children in the community who, through no fault of their own, have ended up in foster care.

The Exchange Club is an all-volunteer, national service organization for men and women who want to serve their community, develop leadership skills and enjoy new friendships.

Exchange is made up of some 900 clubs and 30,000 members throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Exchange is a group of men and women working together to make communities better places to live through programs of service in Americanism, community service, youth activities and its national project, the prevention of child abuse.
