READING, PA – The Olivet Boys & Girls Club PAL Center for the Arts has recently been identified as the recipient of the Wells Fargo Community Connections Program grant. The organization was honored at Wells Fargo’s Community Connections breakfast held at the DoubleTree by Hilton on October 11, 2017.
Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Program is an annual program where each of its retail banking branches explores the needs of their local communities and selects a nonprofit organization or school to receive a $1,000 grant. This year, Wells Fargo will award more than $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 2016, Wells Fargo and its team members invested more than $9.1 million in nonprofit organizations and schools and team members volunteered more than 31,000 hours across Pennsylvania.
Olivet Boys & Girls Club is proud to be recognized by Wells Fargo as an organization that strengthens local neighborhoods and families and works to address the vital community needs and issues.
