Fifty-four South Atlanta groups to be recognized with $1000 grants at Days of Giving celebration
Local non-profits receive $1,000 each; Total of $54,000 invested in local community as program celebrates seventh anniversary
ATLANTA, Ga. (Oct. 21, 2015) – Fifty-four South Atlanta non-profits will be honored on November 3 by Wells Fargo team members with $1,000 Days of Giving grants, at a community breakfast held at Zoo Atlanta.
Days of Giving is a Wells Fargo initiative through which individual bank stores honor organizations in the communities where those stores do business. All of the groups were selected by frontline team members in bank stores in the area. Including this year’s giving, Wells Fargo will have given more than $1,500,000 in Days of Giving grants to groups across Metro Atlanta since the program began.
“The level of commitment these organizations give to South Atlanta make me so proud to honor them through Days of Giving and to call them my neighbors,” said Mitch Graul, South Atlanta area president for Wells Fargo. “They are an example of how our collective efforts can make a major impact – on individuals, neighborhoods, our county, our city and beyond.”
