Opening Night 11/26/22 - CLOSURES ANNOUNCED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA
SCC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and provides funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations throughout the nation that meet the direct needs of children. Our vision is that every child has the same opportunities no matter what obstacle they are facing.
Speedway Children’s Charities is more than just a fundraiser. Our local chapters are partners in change, working with a broad range of people and organizations to identify and resolve pressing issues dealing with children in their communities.
Because of the unique conditions in every community, the issues Speedway Children’s Charities address are determined locally. Challenges ranging from learning disabilities, broken homes, and childhood cancer are on the agenda for the local chapters of SCC and the numerous non-profit organizations they support.
In 2019, Speedway Children’s Charities distributed more than $3 million in grants to more than 400 charitable organizations across the country, bringing the total funds distributed since 1982 to more than $58.3 million, and ensuring that many children in need are given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthy future.
Over the course of the last 18+ years, 94.9 KLTY has raised millions of dollars in cash, goods, and services and channeled it back into the DFW Community through the 94.9 KLTY Christmas Wish™ (a certified 501(c)3 program). The 94.9 KLTY Christmas Wish continues to help hundreds of families in the Metroplex each year thanks in part to our partners, listeners and staff!
The 94.9 KLTY Christmas Wish empowers our listeners to nominate friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors… the man on the street…. anyone that may have a need. Our staff then reviews all submitted wishes, authenticates, categorizes, and then shares them with the community. We encourage our listeners to grant wishes on their own and share in the giving spirit of Christmas!
