Wells Fargo donates $1K to Soroptimist

DOWNEY - Wells Fargo made a $1,000 donation to Soroptimist International of Downey last month to strengthen the service organization's work in the community.

The donation was made Oct. 17 when Wells Fargo held its Greater San Gabriel Community Support Breakfast in Pasadena.

Wells Fargo and its employees invested a record $27 million in 1,600 schools and nonprofits in Greater Los Angeles and Orange County in 2011.

"Soroptimist is grateful for their generous donation and will apply it to our scholarships and service projects in the community," said Giggy Saab, president of Soroptimist International of Downey.
