Speedway Children’s Charities officials are asking for donations to assist the Raleigh (N.C.) Salvation Army in their disaster relief efforts for the Eastern part of North Carolina in the wake of Saturday’s severe weather that left many without food and shelter.

The Raleigh Salvation Army has requested baby formula, diapers, hygiene products and cleaning supplies to supplement the food and clothing that Speedway Children’s Charities and Feed the Children will supply. Therefore, all day Wednesday, April 20, the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office will double as a drop-off point for these items. Between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. the general public can drop the aforementioned items in specially-marked bins inside the speedway ticket office, located on the second floor of Smith Tower, at the speedway’s main entrance on the corner of N.C. Highway 29 and Bruton Smith Blvd.

Speedway Children’s Charities and Feed the Children are partnering with the Salvation Army to help with disaster relief efforts. Thursday morning, April 21, Speedway Children’s Charities will dispatch trucks to Raleigh from Charlotte Motor Speedway loaded with clothing and toys, in addition to the donations received on Wednesday. One of Speedway Children’s Charities’ newest partners, Feed the Children, will also deliver a tractor trailer full of food to the Raleigh chapter of the Salvation Army, who in turn will help distribute items to families in need who have been affected by Saturday’s severe weather.
