Exchange Club Buys Gifts for Children

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

The Butte Exchange Club and the Salvation Army are teaming up to bring under-privileged children presents on Christmas.

Last week, Exchange Club members bought more than $2,500 worth of toys for nearly two dozen Butte-area children as part of the "Spirit of Christmas" event.

This is the 15th year the club bought gifts for the kids.

The Exchange Club will donate the gifts to the Salvation Army, which will then give the gifts to the children.

"We really care deeply about our future generation," said Doug Rotondi with the Butte Exchange Club. "These are the kids that are going to go ahead and take our places and run this country. So it's very important to have a good upbringing as well as enjoying the fun in the spirit of Christmas."
