CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bass Pro Shops has joined forces with The NASCAR Foundation in support of NASCAR Unites, a campaign designed to raise valuable funds and encourage volunteerism to help children lead happier, healthier lives.

Beginning in time for NASCAR Day, Bass Pro Shops will offer outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to get their NASCAR Unites wristband for a $5 donation which showcases support for children and encourages acts of service. The program will conclude on Aug. 20 or while supplies last. Consumers who donate can get a NASCAR Unites wristband at any Bass Pro Shops store and through Bass Pro Shops call center 1-800-BASS PRO.

NASCAR Unites offers fans and the NASCAR community "Two Million Ways to Unite for Kids" through volunteerism and fundraising. In 2011, The NASCAR Foundation will generate one million volunteer hours and grant $1 million to children's charities in local communities.

In addition to Bass Pro Shops kicking off its support of NASCAR Unites, its Rancho Cucamonga location will offer supporters the opportunity to be involved in the nationwide NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids. This is one of more than 30 locations participating in the NASCAR Day Car Wash for Kids. To find a location near you, please visit NASCAR.COM/Unites.
