Students give Heart Art quilt to benefactor FIS

To commemorate the first Show Us Your Heart art program, sponsored by FIS and facilitated by the American Heart Association-First Coast, the students of KIPP Impact Middle School last month presented a handmade quilt to Frank Martire, Chairman and CEO and Gary Norcross, President and COO, of Riverside-based financial technology company FIS.
The quilt was created by 60 students in grades 5-7 during a five-week art program last fall and is representative of the students’ interpretations of how cardiovascular disease impacts their and loved ones lives. With a strong tradition of community involvement, FIS saw the sponsorship as way to bring together two of its charitable giving interests, to give to American Heart Association-First Coast while creating a direct benefit for the students of KIPP Impact Middle School on McDuff Avenue.
