Shawn Ball issues community challenge for WVU Day of Giving

Shawn Ball of L&S Toyota issued a $50,000 challenge during an announcement Friday afternoon for the WVU Day of Giving on November 14, 2018.

Shawn Ball of L&S Toyota issued a $50,000 challenge during an announcement Friday afternoon for the WVU Day of Giving on November 14, 2018. If WVU Tech raises $10,000 on November 14, the $50,000 gift from Shawn Ball will be unlocked. These funds mean more support for students in our area. Ball hopes that this challenge will help engage Southern WV in the Day of Giving and help raise funds for WVU Tech’s areas of greatest need.

“WVU Tech has been a game changer for our town and it’s only going to get better. We want it to grow and we want the community to grow with it,” Ball said. “We have no trouble getting students jobs when they graduate from WVU Tech. It’s such a good school and it’s in a great town.” Finally, Ball challenged the community with asking for their support, “We want these funds and this support to grow. We want to remind the community why we do this. It’s to help students.”
