Earlier this week Wells Fargo announced that it would be donating $500,000 to community revitalization efforts through the company’s NeighborhoodLIFT program.
Among the five Philadelphia-based organizations receiving a $100,000 share of the half of a million dollars is Diversified Community Services, a Point Breeze-based non-profit dedicated to improving the neighborhood.
The money will go towards the neighborhood revitalization of Point Breeze Avenue, including anything from workforce development and youth programs to neighborhood beautification. Diversified Community Services already represents the neighborhood through programs for youth and families and the creation of energy-efficient and affordable housing options.
You can read more about Diversified Community Services and the Wells Fargo grant program. In the future expect to hear more about how this $100,000 will be implemented, along with the potential for community feedback on the allocation and use of these funds to better the neighborhood.
