NASCAR SpeedPark supports Freedom Readers

Guest donations at the registers promote love of reading

FEBRUARY 2014 – In partnership with Freedom Readers, Inc., NASCAR SpeedPark Myrtle Beach and its charitable arm, PARC Foundation, have launched a philanthropic campaign which invites guests to round up their in-park purchases to the nearest whole dollar, with a portion of proceeds supporting Freedom Readers. The campaign will begin on March 1, 2014 and continue through the end of May.

The mission of Freedom Readers is to improve reading skills in low income communities by providing one-to-one literacy tutoring, free books for home libraries, and an inspiring, high-energy learning environment. It does this by connecting people through a comprehensive program that offers individuals opportunities to improve academic performance and career prospects in order to alleviate poverty. Freedom Readers promotes a love of reading and development of the skills, tools, habits, and characteristics needed to become good readers.

“PARC Foundation is proud to support Freedom Readers,” said Bob Baldwin, Executive Director of PARC Foundation. “Organizations like Freedom Readers fit closely with our mission of strengthening children and communities while positively impacting the local community. We are blessed to provide fundraising opportunities and community awareness for this organization at NASCAR SpeedPark Myrtle Beach.”
