Wells Fargo representatives were in Biloxi today to present one organization with a big gift.
Community and education leaders were on hand at the Lopez School for the presentation of an $80,000 check to Biloxi’s Excel by 5 organization.
The money is part of Wells Fargo’s ‘LIFT the Block’ grants and will help Excel by 5 Fund continued early childhood education and new community areas for kids and families to gather in Biloxi.
Mike Ryan with Wells Fargo says this grant will impact the broader Biloxi community. “With ‘LIFT the Block,’ the 80,000 today, not only the individual children, but the broader community, it’s just a tremendous impact and Wells Fargo, we’re so proud to be a part of it.”
‘LIFT the Block’ grants are a part of Wells Fargo’s national ‘Neighborhood LIFT Program,’ which made its Mississippi debut in 2018.
