The administration, staff and students of Drexel Neumann Academy (DNA) received an early Christmas present on Dec. 10th when representatives from Wells Fargo Bank presented a $50,000 check to the school.
Wells Fargo Community Affairs Manager Aldustus Jordan and Area President for Delaware and Chester counties Robin Choi, visited the school in Chester to personally deliver the check.
The representatives said the San Francisco-based bank that ranks fourth in the nation with nearly $1.5 trillion in assets, according to Forbes magazine, has a “strong commitment” to making a positive difference in the school community.
Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia’s Director of Corporate Responsibility Sr. Nora Nash introduced Jordan to the school and its needs.
Sr. Margaret Maggie Gannon, OSF said DNA is “beyond grateful” for the bank’s generosity. “We are so thankful for the kindness,” she said.
The financial assistance will be used for scholarships, and bank volunteers will actively participate in student learning through field trips, reading, and a Hands on Banking program as part of its corporate commitment to strengthening communities and improving educational opportunities for children.
Also there for the presentation was DNA Principal Sr. Cathy McGowan, who also was appreciative for the donation.
