Dr. William E. Flippin Jr., senior pastor of Greater Piney Grove, welcomed the “Get Financially Fit” program to his church.
“We’ve heard such great things and I hope many members of the church and many others across Atlanta will devote a morning to their financial health,” he said.
“Through the Financial Capability Network, United Way’s goal is to increase the financial capability of more than 3,000 people in just three years,” says United Way of Greater Atlanta president and CEO Milton J. Little, Jr. “We are proud to partner with Wells Fargo and other companies and organizations to build stronger communities and change the future of individuals and families across Greater Atlanta.”
Added Nancy Flake Johnson, president of the Urban League, “We are delighted to partner with the Concerned Black Clergy, Greater Piney Grove Church and Wells Fargo to provide valuable information that will promote sustainable homeownership and entrepreneurship to our communities and those attending.”
Overwhelmingly, participants attending previous seminars indicated that they would recommend the event to a friend.
“This partnership with the Concerned Black Clergy has now helped more than 900 people,” said Mike Donnelly, Atlanta region president for Wells Fargo. “We want to put more and more individuals and families on the road to financial success.”
