On Monday, November 9th, Esperanza’s Senior Director of Housing and Economic Development received a check for $1000 on behalf of Esperanza as a Wells Fargo Community Connections Grant.
Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Giving Program is an annual program where each of its retail banking stores explores the needs of their local communities and selects a nonprofit organization or school to receive a $1000 grant. This year, Wells Fargo will award close to $300,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations and schools throughout Pennsylvania.
The grants are part of the company’s broader support of its communities. In 2014, Wells Fargo invested more than $13.4 million in nonprofit organizations and schools and team members volunteered more than 57,000 hours across Pennsylvania.
“At Wells Fargo, we know that small acts can yield huge results and we are committed to supporting programs and organizations that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success,” said Raul Villabona, Service Manager for the 5th & Wyoming Branch of Wells Fargo Bank, “So we are proud to support Esperanza with this grant.”
At Esperanza, we understand the importance of partnering with our corporate sponsors and local businesses in order to make a difference in Hunting Park. It is an honor to be able to work with Wells Fargo in making our community a better place, and we thank them for their continued support of Esperanza’s mission to strengthen Hispanic communities.
