The Exchange Club of East Dallas is a 66 year old service organization of men dedicated to serving the children of East Dallas. Each year we provide thousands of coats, books, and scholastic reader magazines to our children. We also work hard to help provide school supplies, eye glasses and other essentials to help keep our children warm in the winter and to become better educated citizens of our community.
