Army represented on the Daytona NASCAR track
At the Daytona NASCAR Nationwide Series event on Feb. 19, NASCAR veteran Morgan Shepherd “donated” the hood of his #89 Nationwide Series race car to The Salvation Army and sported the Red Shield and “Doing the Most Good” brand promise.
At age 69, Shepherd is the founder of Victory in Jesus Racing Ministries, and while he’s got a small team with limited means, he’s still searching for opportunities to give back.
“There are millions in our country right now who have lost their jobs, their homes, and their spirit,” Shepherd said. “The demand is very high and we thought we could take our ‘ministry on wheels’ to a higher level and assist The Salvation Army when they need it the most. I’ve been blessed in so many ways over my career, and this is a way of giving back in honor of our fans and supporters. We don’t have much, but what we have, we can ‘donate’ to The Salvation Army.”
