The all-volunteer Sea Girt Lighthouse Citizens Committee, which maintains Sea Girt Lighthouse and preserves its rich history through tours, this website and special events like the Lighthouse Challenge, has received a $1,000 grant from Well Fargo & Company to support general operating expenses at the lighthouse.
“We are proud to partner with the Sea Girt Lighthouse Citizens Committee as you work toward achieving our shared goals in the community,” wrote Deborah A. Smith, Community Affairs Manager at Wells Fargo Social Responsibility Group in announcing the grant.
SGLCC was among 26 organizations in southern and central New Jersey to each receive a $1,000 donation through the Wells Fargo Community Partners Program.
“Wells Fargo’s recognition of our efforts and their financial support are greatly appreciated,” said Bill Mountford, SGLCC vice-president. “This grant will help us meet our operating expenses and the never-ending challenge to keep our treasured landmark in good condition, open to the public and alive with activity.”
The grants were presented at a Community Partners Breakfast Ceremony held at the Molly Pitcher Inn in Red Bank October 4.
Commitment to Neighbors
In a press release issued in connection with the ceremony; Wells Fargo Southern New Jersey Regional President Brenda Ross-Dulan stated: "Wells Fargo is focused on supporting long-term economic growth and an improved quality of life for everyone. These nonprofit organizations’ commitment to their neighbors and communities is inspiring, and each grant is well-deserved."
