Nelson Toyota in Martinsville Gives Big Christmas Gift to Martinsville City Public Schools

Posted:

Martinsville,VA-- Christmas came early for some teachers and students in Martinsville City Public Schools on Friday.

They received a check for more than $8,000 from Nelson Toyota in Martinsville.

More than $6,000 will go toward laptop computers for the literacy program at Martinsville Middle School, and a saxophone for the Jazz Band.

The rest of the money will pay for laptops and forensic science kits for Martinsville High School.

"They had these items on a wish list and then to have someone call and say, we'd like to funds that for you, is very much appreciated. It really is like a Christmas present," said Pam Heath, Superintendent of Martinsville city Public Schools.

Nelson Toyota says they donate to the community periodically, but this is the first time they decided to focus on the area's educational needs.
