Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter
The Arkansas Gumball Rally raised one thousand two hundred dollars for the Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter. That is the approximate equivalent to one day of care for fourteen children. The money was donated to the Children's Shelter's operations budget and will be used to provide care to over five hundred children over the course of this year.
Aside from the monetary donation that was made, the Arkansas Gumball Rally also provided the current residents of the Children's Shelter with an afternoon of fun. More than forty cars from the Rally drove to the Children's Shelter and put on a car show as part of the culmination event for that weekend's Rally. The children were able to look at, touch, and sit in the cars, as well as talk to the drivers about their vehicles.
