Pacifica Schools Receive Wells Fargo Grants

Two Pacifica schools received $1,000 each from Wells Fargo.

This week, two Pacifica schools received $1,000 checks from Wells Fargo. The checks were just a small part of the $82,000 of grants given to 82 Peninsula schools at a breakfast in Foster City Tuesday.

Mangers of local Wells Fargo branches picked which schools in their towns would received the grants, each in $1,000 increments.

“In addition to the countless hours that our team members spend volunteering in local schools, we are proud to provide funding directly to schools throughout the Peninsula,” said President of Wells Fargo’s Peninsula market Wendy Haller. “By hosting this breakfast event and providing funding to schools, we want to personally say ‘thank you’ to the educators in our communities and provide resources to help purchase school supplies or other pressing needs.”

Since 2009, Wells Fargo has given more than $16 million to educational nonprofits and schools in the Bay Area.

The following Pacifica schools received grants:

Sunset Ridge School

Terra Nova High School

I love Wells Fargo. I have been with them since I was a youth and they have always been there for me.
