The Charlotte Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities wants to thank all of the volunteers and donors for their wonderful support the past few weeks during the All Star and Coca-Cola 600 Race events.  Without the hard work of volunteers and the gracious giving of donors, SCC would not be able to provide the much needed help to area children and their families.

Even though the races are complete there is still work to be done.  The few weeks after the Coca-Cola 600 mark the beginning of the summer and the start of preparing and organizing events for fall and winter.  The summer allows us to analyze our previous events in order to maximize our efforts in the future to better help children in need.

There are countless children in need in our region and in order to better target and focus the efforts of our donors and volunteers we need applicants for our SCC Grant Program.  This time of year is the best time for potential grant recipients to apply.  The deadline to apply for our 2011 Grant Program is July 15th!

This summer I have been given the wonderful opportunity to broaden my work experience and supplement my coursework under the gracious individuals here at Speedway Children's Charities.  But, most importantly, I have been given the chance to help others in need.  The efforts of SCC and its volunteers not only help children, but indirectly help those in and around it.

Take care,
