Los Gatos Silicon Valley Home Gives Cash Awards to 65 Schools

A total of 65 campuses will receive $200 during a special reception noon to 2 p.m. March 2 at company's headquarters, 221 Los Gatos-Saratoga Rd. in Los Gatos.

Los Gatos-based Silicon Valley Home, one of the Bay Area’s leading real estate developers of affordable houses, will distribute donations on March 2 to 65 elementary schools in Santa Clara, Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Cruz counties.

“We believe that by improving the quality of homes, we also improve the quality of lives, both for the homeowner and the neighborhood,” said Todd Hill, principal of SVHome. “Often what was once the worst house on a street is now the best, raising property values and giving people more pride in their neighborhood.”

SVHOME believes that investing in children builds the foundation for a brighter future for them and their communities, Hill added. For every home sold, SVHOME will donate $200 to that neighborhood’s local elementary school, he said.

In Los Gatos, Blossom Hill Elementary School is among the recipients. Other schools in the West Valley are receiving donations are located in Campbell, Cupertino, Mountain View and Gilroy, among others. To see the complete list of schools benefiting from the awards, click here.

Checks will be presented to school officials between noon and 2 p.m. March 2 at SVHOME’s main office in Los Gatos, 221 Los Gatos-Saratoga Rd. The public is invited for food and refreshments and to meet the SVHOME team.

Good job. And Thanks Mr Hill for also opening a gun shop on my daughter's walk to school.

I'm on the Sixth District PTA board representing all of the Santa Clara County PTA schools. What a great idea to give $200 to so many deserving schools. Thank you!

The gun shop is on the same premises as SV home used to be but I don't think Templar sports is anything to do with Todd Hill and SV Home.

I guess my comment was removed because I used Rebecca DeMartini's real name. I am just upset that these folks hide with their venom in anonymity.
