Wells Fargo Donates $5,000 to Wagner Farm Arboretum
Richard Zangara, the Branch Manager of Wells Fargo Advisors on Mount Bethel Road, presents the Trustees of the Wagner Farm Arboretum with a check for $5,000. The funds help support the Arboretums efforts to bring educational programs to the children and residents of Warren and its surrounding towns.
The generous donation was a result of a successful Run/Walk event held on September 21, 2014 sponsored by Wells Fargo. Many locals participated in the run which looped around Warren Township, starting and ending at the Arboretum. This was the first Run event held to benefit the Arboretum’s fundraising efforts. The Arboretum hopes to hold another Run/Walk like this in the future.
