Hildebrands donate to CTEP

Andy and Georganna Hildebrand are local residents who recently donated approximately $80,000 of equipment and lumber to the Santa Cruz County Career Technical Education Partnership programs.

This equipment and lumber will be used by hundreds of students at the following high schools: Harbor High School, San Lorenzo Valley High School, Natural Bridges Green Career Center, Soquel High School, Ponderosa High School, Sequoia High School, and Watsonville High School. Andy and Georganna were very gracious in donating fairly new woodworking equipment, vehicles, and premium lumber that he milled himself.
