Hey y’all! It has been awhile since I spotlighted a charity that I love. This specific charity holds a spot near and dear to my heart. I worked for them several years ago and I can tell you the people (volunteers and employees) are some of the most fantastic people you will EVER meet.
If you remember, one of my new years resolutions is to volunteer more and I am excited to say that I am going to help spearhead a Young Professionals group for the local Texas Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities.
Why do I love SCC? Here is a little about the organization straight from their website.
The mission of Speedway Children’s Charities remains true to the ideals it was founded upon in 1982: To care for children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives.
Since 1997, Speedway Children’s Charities at Texas Motor Speedway has distributed more than $10.2 million in funding to non-profit organizations in North Texas supporting children in need. The funds distributed by Speedway Children’s Charities are raised through special events held throughout the year. Most of Speedway Children’s Charities events are geared around the three major race weeks at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speedway Children’s Charities could fill the grandstands at Texas Motor Speedway 16 times with the number of children we have helped since 1997. Our reach is far, and the dollars we raise go to directly helping children in our community.
Children’s organizations in Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties are eligible to apply for the Speedway Children’s Charities’ annual Founders and Partner Grants. Qualified applicants must directly fulfill needs of children in our area and be a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
This group has raised money that TREMENDOUSLY helps the local Texas community and specifically KIDS! I love the cause and I love the people!
