$200,000 Distributed to Sonoma Non-Profits By Speedway Children's Charities Sonoma Chapter
$200,000 have been gifted to local Sonoma non-profits as part of Speedway Children’s Charities Sonoma Chapter’s annual grant program. 39 local organizations were chosen from the many applicants to receive funds, and this year’s financial awards will help fund critical needs programs that provide resources for shelter, food, medical and dental care, mental health, education and more.
Sonoma Raceway team members from all departments recently volunteered at the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. Giving a combined total of 75 hours of their time, the group worked packaging produce for patrons who come to pick up fresh, healthy food for their families.
The group worked in teams to sort, weigh and bundle the produce, and ended up packaging 13,205 pounds of produce which will provide over 11,000 meals for those in need.
