Dear Friend,

Your organization can be a part of Merrimack Valley’s fight for safer kids and healthier families by sponsoring our annual DRIVE AGAINST CHILD ABUSE Golf Tournament and our exciting OKTOBERFEST. Both are run by The Exchange Clubs of the New England District (and the New England Exchange Clubs Foundation (NEECF), a 501(c) (3) entity, for the sole purpose of raising funds for “The Center.”

“The Center” (The Michael B. Christensen Community & Family Support Center) is a 501(c) (3) organization in a partnership with the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council, Inc. (GLCAC) and the Exchange Clubs of the Merrimack Valley.

... and, it is a wonderful success story. 

The Center is literally saving lives, bringing families together, and making children feel safe, happy and loved. This is happening  throughout the Greater Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire. Over 100 families each week from Lowell to Lawrence and Haverhill, and from Salem to Amesbury and Newburyport, are touched by the dedicated people of The Center.

Please consider helping fight Child Abuse and Neglect by sponsoring a part of this special event.

The event honors the work of Michael Christensen, an Exchange Club member, a community leader, and one of the founders of the annual Blue Ribbon Campaign against Child Abuse and Neglect. This golf tournament is a key part of that tradition over the last 17 years. Michael’s service and commitment to the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect inspires us all. Thank you for your help this year!
