Hamlin Helps with West Virginia Flood Relief

Denny Hamlin has partnered with The NASCAR Foundation to benefit the victims of the West Virginia flooding in late June. The floods killed 23 people and devastated homes, businesses and infrastructure.  

Five experiences and seven items have been placed for online auction. The listings can be bid on until August 1 at FanaticsAuctions.com (click this link). 

In addition to the auction, Hamlin is handing out toys and school supplies on July 28 at the White Sulphur Springs train station to Greenbrier County students affected by the floods. Fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Larson is joining him. 

List of experiences and items for auction:

 

All proceeds go to Denny Hamlin Foundation for the flooding victims in Greenbrier, West Virginia.  Greenbrier County accounted for 15 of the 23 deaths. 

“The devastation in West Virginia, especially around Greenbrier County, was heartbreaking to see unfold,” said Hamlin, a regular on The Greenbrier’s golf courses, who wears the resort’s logo on the sleeve of his racing fire suit. “The area is full of hard-working, honest people that, unfortunately, lost a lot. I have seen a lot of other athletes and celebrities help the residents of West Virginia in various ways, and I wanted to give back, as well. Providing area children with new toys is just a small part of the rebuilding process, but hopefully it provides a little relief for the friends, family and neighbors of the Greenbrier.”
