You Made a Difference: Drew

Drew came to New Foundations Home for Children in 2021 and has grown into a wonderful young man. 

While in high school, Drew worked hard on his studies, supported by a community that provided the teen with the things other teens at school had. He went to Prom – his first formal dance, tuxedo and all – with a beautiful date on his arm. In the spring of 2023, Drew received the South Carolina High School Employability Credential from Westside High School and immediately wanted to start life as an employee. 

Working with South Carolina Vocational Rehabilitation, he trained to be a forklift driver. It wasn’t long before he landed a good job. He is now gainfully employed and saving money for his future. He will have to leave us when he turns 21 but he will always have a “family” to call on. More importantly, he knows that he matters to his community. 

Drew provided the gumption, donors provided what he needed to develop his confidence and sense of worth.

NASCAR Driver for a day!

Enjoy a package for two that provides classroom training AND the ability to drive real NASCAR Monster Energy Cup cars on a professional superspeedway track (Atlanta or Charlotte Motor Speedways).

There is no lead car to follow and no instructor riding with you. Personal racing instructors communicate with you using 2-way radio racing electronics, as well as be your spotter, coaching you during the racing sessions and helping you achieve fast speeds safely. Passing is allowed — pass the slower cars as you catch them, putting the pedal to the metal and seeing if you have what it takes to be a NASCAR driver!

Family photos are so precious!
