CASA for Children, Inc. recently was honored by Wells Fargo with a $1,000 grant at the company’s Days of Giving ceremony.
The donation to CASA for Children, Inc. is among contributions to 240 non-profit groups, each for $1,000, to organizations across Atlanta made at five community breakfasts. The company began the program in Atlanta last year and in 2010 expanded it by more than a third.
“These unrestricted dollars will allow us to continue to help the foster youth in Cherokee County,” said Deidre Hollands, CASA’s Executive Director. “With the economy still suffering, the money couldn’t come at a better time.”
“A hallmark of Wells Fargo is local decision-making and local involvement,” said Sean Mabey, community bank president. “Through Days of Giving we’re connecting with local communities in a whole new way.”
He added that CASA for Children, Inc. was selected by frontline employees of the company for the honor. “We know the needs continue to be great across our area, especially now. This is a new way to help more people and more groups that we haven’t been able to reach in the past.”
