Norma Martinetti receives a gift of appreciation from a student.

The Community Foundation for San Benito County awarded a $75,000 matching grant to Sacred Heart Parish School from the Norma Martinetti Family Fund.

This grant is combined with an additional $35,000 that the students raised from their Walk-a-Thon fundraiser. The Community Foundation grant, along with the Walk-a-Thon contributions, will provide new school technology and student issued iPads beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.

“We sincerely thank the Community Foundation and Norma Martinetti for this generous grant.  The students ran/walked a total of 1,290 miles and look forward to another successful Walk-a-Thon next year!” said Danielle Nino and Denise Brigantino, Sacred Heart Parish School Walk-a-Thon co-chairs, in a press release.
