Last week was simply a treasure for me. I was invited to a ‘Summer Caution’ event by NASCAR’s Motor Racing Outreach Women’s Ministry in Charlotte, NC. Since 1988, the MRO has given countless hours of their time and millions of dollars across a wide variety of needy people around the world. Each year the women’s ministry has a ‘Summer Caution’ in which they partner with a local Charlotte organization to make a difference in the lives of individuals around the area.
This year the MRO partnered with Bright Blessings - Previously called Birthday Blessings. Bright Blessings is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving homeless children across the greater Charlotte region. They have two programs. ‘Bless-A-Baby’ which provides care-essential baskets to mothers and babies entering homelessness, and ‘Bless-A-Birthday’ which hosts birthday celebrations at local homeless shelters and classroom birthday party packages for transient homeless students across the local area schools.
