Naomi Project receives $10,000 grant
The Naomi Project, Inc., has received a $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo & Company to support the organization’s efforts in assisting domestic abuse victims. The grant will support the medical, daycare, transportation and food expenses needed to help families thrive in an environment free from violence.
“The Naomi Project is designed to change the lives of families going through domestic abuse after making the choice not to return to their abusers,” said Executive Director, Joyce Gillespie Ford. “We are grateful for Wells Fargo’s support, as it will allow us to provide the necessary resources for domestic abuse victims and their families.”
We opened our doors in July 2006, as a result of those unmet long-term needs of victims and their children affected and impacted by domestic abuse, she continued. The Naomi Project is the only domestic abuse long term transitional operation of its kind in the Pee Dee area. We provide basic needs (shelter, clothing and food as needed) resources and support to help the women become fully independent, contributing members of the community.
“Building strong and vibrant communities, making a positive difference and improving the quality of life for everyone is a mission Wells Fargo has always believed is important,” said Wells Fargo Northeast South Carolina Market President John Bankson. “We are proud to support The Naomi Project in their efforts to empower our community by helping victims of domestic abuse. As America’s Community Bank, investing in our communities is one of the most important things we can do as a company.”
