ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Canine Assistants was the recipient of $1,000 in grants from Wells Fargo Nov. 15 in the third year of the bank's Days of Giving program. Canine Assistants was one of 234 nonprofit organizations to receive such grants.

In the Days of Giving celebration, team members in the company's almost 200 bank stores in Atlanta, along with those in other business lines, selected and recognized groups that were delivering important services in their local areas.

The donations to the groups were distributed at five community breakfasts across Atlanta. Wells Fargo launched the annual initiative in the fall of 2009.

A total of 40 groups were honored at a breakfast at the Alpharetta YMCA.

Canine Assistants is a Milton-based charity that trains dogs to be caretakers and lifelong companions to those with mobility issues. The dogs are given free of charge.

The company also announced that its Atlanta team members had pledged or given $937,000 through its annual United Way and Community Support campaign – 10 percent more than last year. Wells Fargo is also making a $600,000 corporate contribution to the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta.

"Just the names of many groups say so much," said Doug Fuentes, community bank president for the north Atlanta metro area. "We are proud to reach so many groups and people through this.

"Wells Fargo has a long proud history of community involvement and local decision making," he added. "Days of Giving is the ideal representation of that, and we look forward to celebrating our communities in this way for years to come."
