Notable Gifts: Wells Fargo supports new Petersburg Public Library

The new Petersburg Public Library replaced one that was in a home built in 1859.

Wells Fargo has donated $31,000 to Virginia LISC in support of the newly opened Petersburg Public Library.

Virginia LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation) is a nonprofit community development support organization that gave an early $2 million bridge loan to the Petersburg Library Foundation to help launch the project. The new 45,000 square-foot library replaced an older library housed in a home built in 1859.

Martin’s ‘Donuts of Hope’ event helps Salvation Army

Martin’s Food Markets has contributed $5,168 to The Salvation Army Central Virginia as a result of the “Donuts of Hope: A Dough-Raising Event.”

During the June 1 to 7 campaign, Martin’s donated 25 cents from every donut sale to The Salvation Army.

“Martin’s is committed to helping those in need throughout all of the communities we serve,” said Jim Scanlon, regional vice president of Martin’s. “By partnering with The Salvation Army for the third year in a row on their Donuts of Hope campaign, we are able to raise money that remains right here to help our Richmond area neighbors.” The three-year total has topped $20,000.

“We are extremely grateful,” said Maj. Timothy P. Carter, Central Virginia area commander. “Just as The Salvation Army was compelled to provide for the needs of American soldiers during World Wars I and II, The Salvation Army is still on the front lines of service, providing help for individuals and families in need.”
