Our Programs of Service

For over 70 years, the IOP Exchange Club, together in fellowship has been dedicated to making our community a better place to live. We focus on 4 programs of service: Americanism, Community, Youth and the Prevention of Child Abuse.


Our Americanism committee seeks to serve our Veterans. Over the past year, we have accomplished a great deal, including:

  • Donated funds to save 4 Veterans from homelessness 
  • Organized and Volunteered for  Memorial Day Veterans BBQ at VA Hospital 
  • Donations to Project Street Outreach to help a Vet get a home 
  • Donations to Fisher House
  • Donations to VA Hospital- Coffee, Yarn, Pillows 
  • Donated 5 Flags to Veterans Treatment Court representing the 5 branches of Military Service

Our Community Service committee finds ways to serve our community through a variety of ways. Over the past year we have:

  • Hosted Sunset and S’mores Event 
  • Hosted Chicken and Pig BBQ 
  • Volunteered at Halloween Carnival at IOP Rec Center 
  • Hosted Public Safety Outing for Police and Fire department
  • Coordinated volunteers and donations for Hope to Home, a non-profit that helps the homeless
  • Partnered with the City of Isle of Palms to create a Turtle Hatchling Scavenger Hunt in order to educate the public about sea turtles

Each year we host the IOP Exchange Club Oyster Roast. This fundraiser allows us to offer scholarships to rising seniors in the area. The Youth committee also sponsors sports teams at the IOP Recreation Center and has hosted programs like Crabbing on Dock with the Lonan Foundation and has hosted the Boys Scouts awards event.

Prevention of Child Abuse

Our Isle of Palms Connector run raises funds that are donated to non-profits that work to save children from child abuse. Over the last 20 years we have donated proceeds from the run totaling over $1 million dollars. In addition, we host donation drives for the non-profits we serve, like Windwood Farm and HALOS.
