For the fourth consecutive year, Wells Fargo Bank has provided a grant to The Partnership for Children of Wayne County. The purpose of the $2500 grant is to assist The Partnership in its Kindergarten Book bag project. Each year, The Partnership distributes over 1200 book bags to young children entering kindergarten, complete with school supplies, a book, and information for parents whose children are transitioning into kindergarten.

Charles Ivey, Executive Director, commented, “This continues to be a wonderful show of community support on the part of Wells Fargo Bank. It reflects the Bank’s interest in Wayne County by helping The Partnership prepare our young children in their transition to the kindergarten classroom. We are truly appreciative of Wells Fargo’s continuing support.”
