Bill Knight Lincoln donates $8,000 to Sand Springs Education Foundation

Bill Knight Lincoln presented the Sand Springs Education Foundation with a check for $8,000 Tuesday morning at Angus Valley Elementary as part of the "Driven To Give" campaign begun in October.

For the fifth year, Bill Knight brought out several brand new Lincolns to Charles Page High School for an afternoon of test drives. For everyone who turned out to drive a Lincoln, the dealership donated $20 to the SSEF. The day generated more than $8,000 worth of test drives. 

School officials used the presentation as a teaching moment for a group of kindergarten students to see if students could read the date and amount. They also talked to them about the Foundation and how donations like this affect them directly. 

The Education Foundation recently delivered $70,000 in grants to Sand Springs schools and teachers shortly before Thanksgiving.
