Employees of Richard Childress Racing and ECR Engines delivered and helped distribute donated cleaning supplies May 25 for residents of the Nashville, Tenn., area who were adversely affected by April’s devastating flooding.

An RCR Promotions show car trailer filled with donated cleaning supplies departed from RCR headquarters in Welcome, N.C., and nearly two dozen RCR and ECR Engines employees flew from Smith-Reynolds Airport, in Winston-Salem, to Nashville International Airport.

The group made stops at United Way distribution centers in the area. RCR began collecting donations May 13 at the RCR Museum.

“We wanted to do more than just drop off a trailer full of cleaning supplies in Nashville,” said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. “People’s lives were turned upside down by the flooding so we wanted to join our partners at Cat Financial to do something personal that shows how much we care. I want to thank everyone who donated and I’m very proud of all of the RCR and ECR employees who are helping distribute those supplies.”

Cleaning supplies collected included bleach, scouring pads, dust masks, work gloves, heavy-duty trash bags, paper towels, insect repellent and hand sanitizer.
