Photo Gallery | Speedway Charities Gathers Food for Families in Need

 

A truckload of food was put together Tuesday that will help feed 400 families in southern Nevada.

The food was collected and distributed by Feed the Children in partnership with the Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities. The Las Vegas Motor Speedway has held several fundraisers throughout the year to provide money for the charity.

Each family will get a 25-pound box of nonperishable food and a 10-pound box of personal care items. The food should provide enough to eat for a family of four for a week.

U.S. VETS helped distribute the food. Approximately 240 veterans are currently living in the organization's two facilities and will benefit from the Feed the Children effort.
