Kern County Raceway held a NASCAR race a few weeks back with a car that sported a very familiar logo: The Salvation Army shield!
Nate Frosland works for Think Ink Marketing who sponsored the car as a way of investing in the neighborhood where they do business and supporting the racing industry. But they also decided to feature a charity instead of promoting their own interests.
Frosland says he chose The Salvation Army because of his history in small town law enforcement. “Everything I’ve seen come out of The Salvation Army is good,” he says.
And, Frosland saw to it that five men from the local Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center could go to the race and see the car up close.
Captain Jonathan Russell is the administrator at our drug and alcohol program in Bakersfield. He went to the race and took five current residents of the program as a special treat.
Not only did they get to watch the race, they met NASCAR driver Brandon Ash.
We’re grateful for the opportunity to Do the Most Good at the Kern County Raceway. Thank you Nate for choosing The Salvation Army!
