Wells Fargo bank has presented several Forsyth County nonprofits with $1,000 grants through the company’s Days of Giving program.

Now in its fourth year, Days of Giving allows Wells Fargo team members to honor groups helping in their local communities.

The following Forsyth County groups received checks during a community breakfast Wednesday at Windermere Golf Club: Next Generation; Mentor Me North Georgia; Camp Kudzu; Abba House; The Place of Forsyth County; No Longer Bound; Court Appointed Special Advocates of Forsyth County; and Family Haven.

Joe Atkinson, area Wells Fargo president for north Georgia, said in a statement that just reading the names gives “a sense of the great work these groups are doing.”

The Days of Giving program is part of the bank’s commitment to helping the communities its branches serve, said Brad McDaniel, district manager.

“We are doing our best to be a great local bank,” he said in a statement. “And this is a cornerstone of our local giving and volunteerism.”
