Morgan Shepherd Donates to Salvation Army

Sixty-nine-year-old NASCAR veteran Morgan Shepherd will be sporting new colors and the most highly recognizable charitable organization in the world at the upcoming Daytona NASCAR Nationwide Series event on Saturday, February 19th.

Shepherd has partnered with The Salvation Army and donated the hood of his #89 Nationwide Series race car at Daytona to assist the organization on a national level during difficult economic times.

"This is a real honor to represent The Salvation Army," says Shepherd. "The economy is tough right now. We're a small race team without a major sponsor and it's extremely difficult, but at least we have food, clothing, and a roof over our head. There are millions in our country right now who have lost their jobs, their homes, and their spirit. 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'll do the best we can to promote The Salvation Army and educate people on what The Salvation Army really does to assist the poor and the hungry.”

“We don't have much,” says Shepherd, “but what we have, we can donate to The Salvation Army.”

The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. The Salvation Army food service programs report more people are seeking food assistance, while donations have decreased in the past year. Shepherd will carry the highly recognizable ‘Red Shield’ and The Salvation Army brand promise ‘Doing The Most Good’ on the hood of his #89 Nationwide Series race car. The Salvation Army will also be a primary part of the race team’s website throughout the year and an associate partner with the car at no charge to them.
