Speedway Children’s Charities has benefited our organization in so many ways. The funding we receive has allowed us to expand our education program and offer our young people many activities that we were unable to offer in previous years.
Some of our needier members receive backpacks filled with school supplies at the beginning of each school year that is replenished on an as needed basis. We are able to offer better incentives for our participants such as candy, awards and field trips.
Our members have taken some very fun, yet very educational field trips this year thanks to SCC. They have been to Hands on Museum, the Planetarium at Bays Mountain and Rocky Mount just to name a few. These factors have gotten our young people more motivated to do their homework in the afternoons which has improved their overall academic achievement.
