Wynnefield Properties has donated $15,000 to the Kannapolis Education Foundation. Wynnefield Properties is building developments in the City of Kannapolis and wanted to support the community by making the contribution. Craig Stone of Wynnefield Properties presented the donation during the April 14 meeting of the Kannapolis City Board of Education. He said that Wynnefield Properties wanted to support the students and teachers of Kannapolis City Schools and be a contributing part of the Kannapolis community. “That is why I am very pleased to donate $15,000 to the Kannapolis Education Foundation. I am also pleased to announce that we have extended our partnership to include the Kannapolis Rotary Club. The result of that partnership is that our gift will be extended to include an additional $7,500 from Rotary. That means the total donation to the Kannapolis Education Foundation will be $22,500.”

 

Stone presented a check to the Kannapolis Education Foundation in the amount of $7,500. He also presented a second check for $7,500 to Rotary District 7680. That money will be used to access a matching Rotary grant of $7,500, which will be designated for the Kannapolis Education Foundation. The result is that the total donation to the Kannapolis Education Foundation will be $22,500. All the money will be used to buy classroom iPads for students and teachers in Kannapolis City Schools.

 

Joe Trull, who is Chairman of the Kannapolis Education Foundation and President of the Kannapolis Rotary Club, accepted the checks. “We are extremely grateful for the support of Wynnefield Properties, and we thank Craig Stone for making these generous contributions. They will make a tremendous difference for the students and teachers of Kannapolis City Schools,” Trull said.
