Kannapolis Kares Day Sept. 26 seeks community volunteers

KANNAPOLIS ó The city of Kannapolis will host the fourth annual Kannapolis Kares Day Saturday, Sept. 26. On this day of city-wide community service, the city actively seeks volunteer activities from civic, educational, neighborhood, business and religious organizations.
Kannapolis Kares Day began in 2006 as a part of the Kannapolis Centennial Celebration. “We are excited to be coordinating our fourth annual Kannapolis Kares Day,” said Kannapolis Community Outreach Coordinator Renee Goodnight. “With the event getting larger each year, we have created a citizens’ committee to help manage all the projects and volunteers.”
The city is seeking groups to participate. This year, the event will focus on education. Projects could include collecting school supplies or uniforms for children in need, volunteering at a local school or educating a group on an important topic of your choice.
The Cabarrus Literacy Council plans to hold a tutor training event so new volunteers can learn how to teach others to read. Lowe’s Home Improvement, at 3025 Dale Earnhardt Blvd., will hold its Safety Saturday, with activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Volunteers are invited for breakfast at 8 a.m., sponsored by Franklin Heights Baptist Church, and lunch, provided by the Kannapolis Intimidators, from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., at Village Park.
To register your project or reserve a spot for breakfast or lunch, contact Elizabeth Cox at 704-920-4314 or ecox@ci.kannapolis.nc.us for more information. You can also download a registration form there.
