Wells Fargo honored 11 nonprofits from Cherokee County on Thursday with $1,000 grants through the banking company’s Days of Giving program.

Days of Giving, now in its fourth year, allows team members from the bank to honor groups helping in their local communities. The program began in 2010.

“Just read the names to get a sense of the great work these groups are doing,” said Joe Atkinson, area president for North Georgia.

The nonprofits received their checks Thursday at a community breakfast at Venue 92, located at 12015 Highway 92 in Woodstock:

Those who received the awards locally were:

•Anna Crawford Children’s Center;

•Cherokee Family Violence Center;

•Alzheimer’s Association;

•The Elm Street Cultural Arts Village;

•Joy House Inc.;

•Dream Power Therapeutic Equestrian Center;

•CASA For Children for Cherokee County;

•Tee It Up Foundation, Inc. / The Giving Foundation;

•North Georgia Angel House Inc.;

•Turner Syndrome Society of The United States; and

•Pruett Family YMCA of Canton.

“We are doing our best to be a great local bank, and this is a cornerstone of our local giving and volunteerism,” said Ben Cucuzza, district manager.

Wells Fargo & Company is a nationwide, diversified, community-based financial services company. Wells Fargo provides banking, insurance, investments, mortgage, and consumer and commercial finance through more than 9,000 offices, 12,000 ATMs, and the Internet at wellsfargo.com.

have witnessed woman who runs dream power using cash donations for personal needs. yells at clients and parents. AND asks volunteers(not employees) to sign a non-compete form. some of the activities held out there are VERY dangerous for some of the clients and volunteers.

It's great to see these community nonprofits recognized by Wells Fargo. I am always grateful for signals of work like this at the community level - the most effective kind!
