Some 240 Atlanta-area nonprofits were honored this fall by Wells Fargo team members with $1,000 Days of Giving donations.
Wells Fargo also announced that its employees in the Atlanta area gave or pledged $1.8 million this fall in the United Way and Community Support campaign — 24 percent more than last year.
Wells Fargo Atlanta region president Mike Donnelly says in a statement to press, “To some, a $1,000 grant may seem small, but we know each of these great groups will be able to make a huge difference with this. And collectively, this will have a major impact in our community.”
The groups received the contributions at four community breakfasts in the metro area. With the program in its sixth year, giving across Georgia will exceed $1.5 million this fall.
All the groups were selected by frontline team members in bank offices in the Atlanta area for the work they are doing locally.
“We are doing our best to be a great local bank, and this is a cornerstone of our local giving and volunteerism,” says Leonard Walker, business banking division manager for Atlanta, in a statement to press.
Similar events are taking place this fall across Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi.
