Garrett has taken a job at a local restaurant. His participation in life skills building, such as applying for employment and creating good employee habits shows a dedication to personal growth and a commitment to contributing to his community.  He goes to work each day, excited to have this opportunity that a local supporter has given him.  Garrett has shared that he hopes to be a chef one day and own his own restaurant. This is possible with your continued help!

The success of Garrett exemplifies the transformative power of your support. By overcoming past traumas, obtaining his GED, finding employment, rebuilding family connections, and learning vital lessons in self-care, he has not only defied the odds but is also laying the foundation for a promising future.

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!
