Wells Fargo donates to YMCA summer program
Wells Fargo of Beaufort, a provider of banking, mortgage, investing, credit card, insurance, and consumer and commercial financial services, recently donated $2500 toward the Beaufort County YMCA’s Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program. The program is one of three pilot programs being tested by YMCA of the USA, the resource office for the nation’s Ys, as part of the nonprofit’s efforts to address gaps in academic achievement among the nation’s most disadvantaged youth. The Y will work with Whale Branch Elementary School to identify students who would benefit from the summer learning loss prevention pilot program.
“The generosity of Wells Fargo is very much appreciated,” stated Beaufort County YMCA CEO Michael Bostwick. “ Gifts like these help make the programs possible and enrich the lives and futures of so many of our children.”
