SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments) is honored to have been chosen as one of 51 Bay Area charitable organizations to receive generous grants from the Fremont Bank Foundation. The awards, donated in honor of Fremont Bank’s 50th Anniversary, were awarded on Thursday, May 15th at a reception held at the Foundation’s Professional Development Center at the Fremont Unified School District headquarters on Technology Drive.
