Charities help Cabarrus Boys, Girls Club

CONCORD — Feed the Children partnered with Speedway Children’s Charities on Tuesday to deliver two truckloads of food and essentials to the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County, 247 Spring St. NW.
The distribution is the first event in a nationwide effort by Feed The Children and Speedway Children’s Charities to help families in areas surrounding racing venues. The event is one of many that Speedway Children’s Charities is involved in during race week for the Coca-Cola 600, which takes place Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The Boys & Girls Club identified 600 families who received a 25-pound box of food, a 10-pound box of personal care items and a box of Avon products. The items distributed were designed to help a family of four for a week.
“Speedway Children’s Charities is honored to continue our work and mission with such a supportive partner as Feed the Children. We look forward to helping more children across this great nation.” Said Maj. Gen. Tom Sadler, who is retired from the U.S. Air Force and is executive director for Speedway Children’s Charities.
This year, Feed The Children and Speedway Children’s Charities will deliver an estimated 500,000 pounds of food and supplies to those in need in areas surrounding Atlanta Motor Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Infineon Raceway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.
In all, Feed The Children’s distributions in partnership with Speedway Children’s Charities will reach 10,000 families.
“We are excited to work with Speedway Children’s Charities to provide help and hope to people who have been affected by today’s economy,” said Travis Arnold, Feed The Children chief operations officer. “This partnership will mean that more children and families in these communities will have food on their table.”
