Habitat in Monmouth awarded grant as part of Wells Fargo Community Connections program
Habitat for Humanity in Monmouth County was awarded a $1,000 grant in early August by Wells Fargo to support the organization's mission of supporting affordable housing opportunities to residents in its Monmouth County service area.
"At a time when donations from the public and private sectors are down due to the economy, we truly appreciate the support Wells Fargo has provided," said Ray Gabler, Executive Director. "We will use this grant to support the construction of affordable housing in our community."
The grant was awarded as part of Wells Fargo's Community Connections program, which provides local branch managers the opportunity to make a $1,000 charitable contribution on behalf of Wells Fargo to a nonprofit of their choice.
Wells Fargo's 45 retail stores in the Southern New Jersey - Jersey Shore region distributed a total of $46,000 in grants to support nonprofit groups - $1,000 for a nonprofit identified by each store manager.
"Our local stores see which nonprofits are out in the community making a difference every day," said Susan Modri-Smith, Wells Fargo's Jersey Shore area president. "We use this as an opportunity to celebrate and say thank you toHabitat for Humanity in Monmouth County for all of the value they have provided to our community over the past year.
The Community Connections program offers Wells Fargo store managers the opportunity to provide additional grants to local nonprofits of their choice in New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware, New York, and Pennsylvania. A total of $140,000 in Community Connections grants is slated to be distributed throughout the months of July and August in Southern New Jersey.
