Joey Logano Returns to Homestead To help Joshua's Heart Feed 100 Families in Underserved Areas
Joey Logano Foundation supports Joshua's Heart Foundation as part of an initiative to invest in organizations offering 2nd chances to children and young adults during times of crisis and those who work to inspire others to live a life of generosity
The event will again be hosted by WSVN's News Anchor, Lorena Estrada, who will shop with the families as they peruse the isles. As is customary, both foundations worked together to bring an unforgettable experience to select families, who were identified and qualified by JHF's longtime partners, Start Off Smart (SOS) and the Homestead Police Department. Along with their Rangers, the Homestead Police, JHF, JLF, NASCAR and SOS employees will volunteer their time and efforts to help enrich the lives of these deserving 100 families during the holidays. All families will receive a $80 Publix gift card to utilize at the event.
This event is part of the Joey Logano Foundation's initiative to empower charities making great strides in NASCAR race markets across the country, which is executed during the 10 weeks of the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series Playoffs. The event is the last in a sequence of giving events sponsored by The Joey Logano Foundation and it's the final event leading up to race day.
The foundation's program objectives are as follows:
Raise awareness to help non-profit organizations prosper in our racing communities
Allow positive change to occur by supporting organizations with the necessary financial resources
Create an opportunity for our fans and partners to take action for causes they can support
Encourage the charities to continue offering second chances for those in need
"Last year was a great event with Joshua's Heart," said Logano. "We were able to provide immediate impact to families that needed it most around the holiday season. We are very eager to get back and provide some more support to families in the South Florida area this year." - Joey Logano
"It is always a win-win when we find partners like the Joey Logano Foundation and Start Off Smart who help us champion the fight against food insecurity while making a difference in the life of those who need it the most," said Joshua. "Holidays are always a stressful time of the year; with the tremendous success of last year's event, it was a natural progression to partner again to help South Florida's working-class poor and those living below the poverty level navigate through these challenging times." - Joshua Williams.
In addition to the shopping spree, all the families in attendance will receive
Ø A gas gift card from Shell, a JLF sponsor
Ø A holiday pie from Publix
