The Friends of the Cherry Hill Public Library was awarded a $1,000 grant by Wells Fargo to support the organization’s mission of providing a variety of programs and services plus innovative technologies to meet the informational, educational and cultural interests of the local 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. This year, the manager of the Wells Fargo branch on Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill, chose the Library as the recipient.
“The Cherry Hill Public Library is honored to receive this grant and proud to have Wells Fargo as a community partner,” said Laverne Mann, director of the Cherry Hill Public Library. “We’re grateful that the work we do for thousands of visitors and patrons does not go unnoticed.”
Wells Fargo, which has 30 branches in Southern New Jersey, distributed a total of $30,000 in grants to support nonprofit groups in the region with $1,000 going to a nonprofit identified by each branch manager. A total of $140,000 in Community Connections grants is slated to be distributed in Southern New Jersey.
