Frontlines – News Briefs Of The West

by Sue Schumann Warner – 

People die and go to hell because nobody will be at the trouble and expense to save them. Let the countryside turn out. Put a way through. Know no impossibilities. If you cannot reach the perishing souls one way, try another. Try every way, and then try them all over again. Never be beaten. You must succeed. Make your mind up to it, and it shall be done.
William Booth, Salvation Soldiery

Wenatchee races to fight hunger
The Wenatchee Valley Super Oval in Wenatchee, Wash. had a food drive during their race day on July 17th. Everyone from the fans, track staff, and sponsors, to the drivers and their pit crews contributed food that was given to The Salvation Army’s local food bank. During one of the race intermissions, the track’s fun bus drove on to the track, along with the race cars, where the staff, drivers and pit crew loaded food onto the bus.

Michelle Lawson, track manager told Capt. Butch Soriano, “I’ve already requested for time to make a challenge to all the tracks at the upcoming NASCAR Conference to have a food drive at the same time next year. There are so many tracks from coast-to-coast. God only knows how big this can get.”
