Toys For Our Troops interview on WBTV

We’re so excited about our 7th annual Toys For Our Troops on December 14th at the Charlotte Motor Speedway!

Toys For Our Troops is an “Early Christmas” for up to 500 local military families. Many children from these families will have a parent that is currently serving and will be away during the holidays, a parent that returned home with injuries, and tragically some that have lost a parent. This is an invitation only event for Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve and their family members. Families must pre-register through the USO of NC.

This entire effort is designed to bring much needed cheer and joy to Charlotte area military children and their parents. The children will have access to the Charlotte Motor Speedway and can explore the excitement, magic, and mystery of the speedway. Santa Claus will be there to give each child attending a toy that has been hand-picked just for them! There will be photo-ops with Santa and Nascar’s very own Lug Nut! Families will be treated to a catered lunch with desert. The children can enjoy carnival games with prizes, face painting, a candy bar, coloring and crafts with Mrs. Claus and more! The USO of NC will be raffling off bicycles and TVs and Giving Tree Realty will give a couple of lucky winners tickets for a ride around the track with their family and tickets to Charlotte Motor Speedway’s spectacular Christmas Light Show. In addition, 2 very lucky children will receive a toy shopping spree at Toyland toy store at 6906 Albemarle Rd in Charlotte that same evening!
