Wells Fargo

O.C.E.A.N., Inc. was provided a grant to support the agencies mission to assist those working towards self-sufficiency. At a time when donations from the public and private sectors are down due to the economy, we truly appreciate the support Wells Fargo has provided. The grant was awarded as part of Wells Fargo’s Community Connections Program, which provides local branch managers the opportunity to make charitable contributions on behalf of Wells Fargo to a non-profit of their choice. A total of $140,000 in Community Connections grants is slated to be distributed throughout the months of July and August in Southern New Jersey.
