PERRY, N.Y. and ARCADE, N.Y., Sept. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Navient, the nation's leading loan management, servicing and asset recovery company, has announced that Navient Foundation, the company-sponsored philanthropic fund, awarded a $5,600 grant to Community Action for Wyoming County. The organization is dedicated to meeting the needs of the area's low-income and disadvantaged population.
"It is impossible for me to put into words the positive impact Navient Foundation's generous gift has on the children and families in our community," said Pat Standish, division director, Community Action for Wyoming County.

"Supporting our local community is something Navient takes great pride in," said Jack Frazier, vice president, Navient. "We are honored to stand behind the Community Action for Wyoming County's commitment to our neighbors."
