As the director of the Atlanta chapter of Speedway Children's Charities, Moats will spearhead the chapter's fundraising and marketing efforts and work with partner organizations to advance Speedway Children's Charities' goal to care for children with educational, financial, social or medical needs.

"Having a special needs child myself, I am very fortunate to now be in a position to assist organizations that reach out to support families with children in need," said Moats. "Working with Speedway Children's Charities will be a labor of love and I am really looking forward to being a champion for children in our community."

Moats joins the Speedway's staff after serving on many Henry County community service boards where she coordinated local charity events. Previous to her current roles with local community service boards, she worked in human resources and recruiting in the medical industry.

Moats earned a degree in business management from Shorter College and has resided in Locust Grove for 18 years with husband Jerry and children Jennifer, Jeremy and Hunter.

The mission of Speedway Children's Charities remains true to the ideals it was founded upon in 1982: To care for children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives. The organization annually raises funds through year-round functions and Atlanta's Labor Day NASCAR night racing weekend. The Atlanta chapter has granted more than $3,300,000 since it's inception.

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.
