MB Motorsports and its marketing partner SealWrap are supporting Operation Homefront, which supports military families in need, at the Atlanta, Chicagoland, Talladega and Texas Camping World Truck Series races. Race fans can join the #63 SealWrap / MB Motorsports team in showing their support for military families by texting HERO to 50555 to make a $5 donation. SealWrap will match the funds raised by the texting campaign up to $10,000.
"Unfortunately, the sacrifices military families make so that their loved ones can provide us our freedom are greatly overlooked." says Jeff Welch of SealWrap. "We want to let these families know that we deeply appreciate all that they do so that we can enjoy the American way of life. Operation Homefront is great organization and I know race fans will join us in expressing their support."
Operation Homefront provides direct services to alleviate a military familyâ€™s or individualâ€™s actual/complete emergency financial burden, as well as counseling and/or recovery support. Emergency financial assistance is in the form of checks paid directly to mortgage lenders, auto mechanics, contractors, hospitals, doctors, dentists and other providers. Other emergency funding assistance, which an applicant receives within 24 to 72 hours, includes the following financial assistance, emergency food, emergency home repairs, critical baby items: formula, food and diapers, home and appliance repair, furniture and household items, local moving assistance, community events, Wounded Warrior transitional family housing and more. Race fans can support MB Motorsports and SealWrap's efforts by making an $5 donation by texting HERO to 50555 or by contacting their local Operation Homefront chapter to donate or volunteer.
MIKE MITTLER’S THOUGHTS ON ATLANTA:
“Atlanta is a great track, both for the teams and the fans. There's always a lot of action, lots of close, side by side racing as this place is wide and fast. Paul Andrews, Jack and the guys have put a lot of effort into making the SealWrap Ford fast, so I'm excited to be heading to Atlanta and look forward to meeting the military folks who will be joining us at the track.”
MIKE MITTLER’S THOUGHTS ON OPERATION HOMEFRONT:
“I'm a big supporter of our military and Operation Homefront does wonderful work to help the families of those who risk their lives to protect our freedom. While our men and women who serve our country make sacrifices to do so, so do their families. I'm grateful for the work Operation Homefront does to make sure these families are supported and know that we appreciate and value them. I hope a lot of face fans text HERO to 50555 to make a $5 donation to Operation Homefront.”
JACK SMITH’S THOUGHTS ON ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY:
“Atlanta is one of the fastest tracks we race at. It's a track drivers love to race at because there's a lot of room, it's fast and that means the fans get to have almost as much fun as the drivers.”
