Community Baby Shower
Each year the club solicits baby related items from the community to restock area pantries like Pearland Neighborhood Center and Christian Helping Hands. The club usually stands in front of a store and hands "shopping list" of items needed and the purchaser can then drop it off on the way out.
Service to Youth
ARC Halloween Dance
Every year the club host all area citizens with disabilities to dress up and come have pizza and dance and just have fun. One of our most exciting and heart-filled project we have. Put's a smile on everyone face.
Annually at the City of Pearland 4th of July Celebration and at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Club members hand out flags to attendees. We are always looking for sponsors to offset cost!
All of the flags you see along FM518 (Broadway) each flag day are owned by the Exchange Club of Pearland. The club, along with our great partners, the City of Pearland, place these flags out to provide a small symbol of our appreciation for those that have or are currently serving our country. These flags are also "rent-able" for those times a loved one returns and you would like to align the roadway to your home or neighborhood in their honor. Contact a club member for more info.
