As the NASCAR Playoffs come to Martinsville Speedway, God’s Pit Crew and Mercy Crossing are partnering with the track to distribute food boxes to benefit families in Henry County on Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 6 p.m.
“We are grateful to once again partner with God’s Pit Crew and Mercy Crossing to support families in need in Martinsville and Henry County,” said Martinsville President Clay Campbell. “God’s Pit Crew is a Virginia organization that has had a positive impact in the lives of families in need across the nation since 1999.
