November 20, 2013ROSWELL, Ga. — The Giving Foundation of Milton received a $1,000 Days of Giving donation by Wells Fargo team members.
Wells Fargo also announced that its employees gave or pledged $1.46 million this fall in the United Way and Community Support campaign – 13 percent more than last year.
On Oct. 30, 50 groups received $1,000 checks at a community breakfast at Roswell Founders Hall. Three additional breakfasts occurred this month and some 240 groups in all will receive the same gift.
With the program in its fifth year, giving in Atlanta will exceed $1 million.
All the groups were selected by frontline team members in bank offices in the Atlanta area for the work they are doing locally.
"Just read the names to get a sense of the great work these groups are doing," said Scott Asher, North Atlanta area president.
"We are doing our best to be a great local bank, and this is a cornerstone of our local giving and volunteerism," said Robert Dobbs, business banking area manager.
Similar events are taking place this fall across Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi.
