Camden — Wells Fargo Advisors announced recently a $4,000 grant to the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry.

The firm’s grant will help the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry provide meals to local families in need. The pantry currently serves more than 1,000 people per month to area families in Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, Rockport, Searsmont, Union and Washington.

“The year 2012 will be the third consecutive year Wells Fargo Advisors is making a substantial monetary donation to the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry,” said Ron Hall, senior vice president and investment officer in Camden, in a news release. “As financial advisors, we are keenly aware of the challenging economic environment our society and specifically our community has experienced.”

“Wells Fargo Advisors is committed to building strong and vibrant communities, improving quality of life, and making a positive difference where we live and work,” said Danny Ludeman, president and CEO of Wells Fargo Advisors in a news release. “As a leader in our industry, we recognize that investing in our communities is a responsibility we have as a result of doing business there, and we understand that our firm is only as strong as the communities where we are located.”

The grant is one of nearly 300 local needs grants being made throughout the U.S. by Wells Fargo Foundation as part of the firm’s Investing in Our Communities initiative.

Wells Fargo & Company has a strong legacy of giving to the community. In 2011, the combined company contributed more than $219 million in grants and sponsorships to nonprofit organizations and 1.3 million team member hours volunteering in communities across the United States.
