RCR Helping Cat Financial Employees after Nashville Flooding

WELCOME, N.C. (May 13, 2010) -- Richard Childress Racing is collecting monetary donations and cleaning supplies in an effort to assist employees of RCR partner Cat Financial, whose lives were adversely affected by the recent floods in Nashville, Tenn.

Contributions can be dropped off the RCR Museum from now through 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 15. Cleaning supplies needed include:

- Bleach

- Dish detergent

- Scouring pads or sponges

- Dust masks

- Work gloves

- Heavy duty trash bags (33-34 gallon)

- Cleaning towels

- Scrub brushes

- Paper towels

- Insect repellent

- Hand sanitizer

A Cat Financial employee relief fund has been established through the United Way. Non-tax-deductible donations can be made to "Cat Financial Employee Flood Relief Fund". To make tax-deductible contributions, checks must be made out to "United Way" but those funds aren't guaranteed to go directly to the Cat Financial employees. Either contribution will be accepted at the RCR Museum.

"Nashville and NASCAR have supported each other forever so this effort is a way for all of us at RCR, and our local fans, to give back to Nashville during this time of crisis," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "We know there are a great number of Cat Financial employees in Nashville who lost everything in the flooding. This effort won't get them back what was lost in the devastation but, hopefully, it will help them start to recover."
