JOEY LOGANO FOUNDATION ESTABLISHES $1 MILLION COVID-19 RESPONSE AND RECOVERY FUND IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ELEVATION CHURCH

June 12, 2018

HELPING COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT THE GREATER CHARLOTTE AREA AND BEYOND

CHARLOTTE, NC — In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Joey Logano Foundation in partnership with Elevation Church, has established a $1 Million COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund. The funding will address a variety of needs, including educational equity and access, medical supplies, food distribution, and financial shortages throughout the greater Charlotte area and communities across the United States.

While the initial shock of the outbreak is dissipating, reality is settling in for many families as they find themselves short on food, low on finances, and struggling to make the transition to online learning. This fund intends to provide a foundation for organizations to act as needs continue to arise during this COVID-19 crisis. “Right now, the world is experiencing a situation like we’ve never seen before,” Logano said. He added, “I’ve been blessed to have the ability to help others with our platform and for the past few weeks, the Joey Logano Foundation has been able to help in multiple ways on a local level. However, Brittany and I knew we could do more and felt a huge calling to give in a larger capacity at a statewide and national level. Partnering up with Elevation Outreach couldn’t have been a better fit. At a blistering pace, Elevation Outreach and the Joey Logano Foundation have been able to create a $1,000,000 COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, which will help provide funding and necessary supplies for organizations in need during this scary time. Part of JLF’s mission is to inspire others to live a life of generosity and our hope is that this Response and Recovery fund is a catalyst for others to be inspired to give back during this pandemic.”

This partnership leverages the generosity of Elevation Church and the Joey Logano Foundation with the network of relationships Elevation Outreach has established through 14 years of ministry in the greater Charlotte Area.
