DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR)—NASCAR Impact Day allows all NASCAR locations and employees to take part in group service projects benefitting local charities. This new initiative reflects the company’s commitment to volunteerism and providing opportunities for NASCAR employees to give back.
On Wednesday, volunteers from both God’s Pit Crew and NASCAR teamed up to frame a three-bedroom house that will soon be provided to a family who lost everything. During their time spent together, the volunteers not only learned new skills, but they experienced valuable team bonding and finished the step in the home’s rebuilding process.
The home frame will be transferred to Rolling Rock, Mississippi where another group of volunteers will finish and fully-furnish the home for a family who lost their home and all their possessions during a deadly tornado earlier this year.
“We lost nearly everything. We had no clue how we were going to get a place to live, when that would ever happen, or even how we would buy a house full of furniture,” shared Pastor Williams when recounting everything he, his wife, and two children had endured. “We just kept trusting God to take care of us, and He has and continues to do so. He is always faithful.”
This project comes just shortly after the speedway and ministry partnered together to provide pallets of Gatorade and bottled water to first responder agencies across the surrounding region. These donations were provided to fire, EMS, and police agencies to aid their workers as they continue to help their respective areas in times of great need.
