One local bank gives thousands of dollars to Wiregrass charities.

Wells Fargo and Company recognized 8 non-profits with grants for their work in the community Saturday.

It's for their new program "Days of Giving."

Each Wells Fargo branch picked a charity and donated $1,000.

The Wiregrass United Way received an additional contribution of $10,000 for their efforts.

"Wells Fargo this year will be approaching $100,000 that we're giving back to this community,” said Jim Freeland, Market President of Wells Fargo in Dothan.

“We're proud they're in Dothan and they're giving a lot of money out to our local organizations today and we're grateful," said Mike Schmitz, Dothan Mayor.

Wachovia financial centers across Alabama became Wells Fargo banking stores in September.

Non-profit groups receiving $1,000 grants are:

Boys and Girls Club of Dothan

Dothan-Houston County Substance Abuse Partnership

Hawk-Houston Boys and Girls Club

Houston-Love Memorial Library

Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center

The Ordinary People’s Society (TOPS)
