Local recipients of grants from the 21st annual Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund were announced Oct. 14 by Cesar Garcia, Wells Fargo's store manager for Delta. Six locally based nonprofit organizations received the donations totaling $5,000.

"Our local, grassroots organizations make such a big difference to those in need in our community," said Garcia. "Through these grants, we hope to show them we appreciate what they do on behalf of all of us to keep our community strong. We're pleased to be able to make these special contributions as part of our overall community efforts in Delta."

The following local organizations received a Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund grant:

• CASA of the Seventh Judicial District

• Delta County Search & Rescue

• Delta Food Pantry

• Delta Homeless Ministries (Abraham Connection)

• Surface Creek Community Services

• The Delta County Meth Task Force

Statewide, more than 200 qualified, community-based nonprofit organizations in Colorado will receive funding from Wells Fargo through the Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund in 2015. Eligible organizations must be certified 501(c)(3) and have an annual budget of $350,000 or less.

The Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund was started to provide greatly needed support to small, nonprofit groups that don't have the resources to compete with larger organizations for community support dollars. Since its inception, more than 4,200 grants in excess of $4.3 million have been awarded.

The Wells Fargo Community Assistance Fund is part of the company's overall community support efforts. In 2014, Wells Fargo donated $7.1 million to 1,000 nonprofit organizations across Colorado, and team members logged more than 30,000 volunteer hours.
