November, 2015, Hershey, PA.–Through its Community Connections Giving Program, WellsFargo recently presented a $1,000 grant to Gemma's Angels for its Veggie Truck Fund.
Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Giving Program is an annual program where each of its retail banking stores 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 close to $300,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations and schools throughout Pennsylvania.
“At Wells Fargo we know that small acts can yield huge results, and we are committed to supporting programs and organizations that we believe are important to the future of our communities’ vitality and success,” said Meshelle Pinzon, Hershey Store Manager. “So we are proud to support Gemma's Angels Veggie Truck Fund with this grant.”
Gemma's Angels began a fund drive in October, 2015 to purchase a replacement vehicle to deliver fresh fruits and vegetables to our client sites in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties. That fund currently stands at $4,700.
Gemma's Angels is waiting a decision on a large grant from the Dauphin County Gaming Advisory Board for a larger delivery vehicle. If the organization does not receive that grant, then Gemma's will proceed to purchase a smaller, less expensive vehicle for its immediate use.
