Our 25th Anniversary Gala Honoree – Wells Fargo
As part of our 25th Anniversary Gala, we are pleased to honor Wells Fargo, a company that has consistently stood with us in our work to end hunger for the past sixteen years, providing both financial support and volunteer power.
The Wells Fargo Foundation has been one of the Food Bank's key financial supporters, contributing more than $400,000 since 1996 through a variety of giving programs including corporate sponsorships, matching gifts, events and holiday giving. Their contributions alone have enabled us to distribute enough food for over 1.2 million meals.
Equally important in its impact is the hard work that Wells Fargo team members have contributed to the Food Bank over the years. Since 2003, Wells Fargo volunteers have come to our warehouse every month to help us sort, package and distribute food to the community. In fact, over 1,700 Wells Fargo volunteers have logged in a total of nearly 5,100 hours just since January of 2010.
Through the years, Wells Fargo's generous and ongoing support has helped the Food Bank expand our comprehensive services to meet the growing need in our community.
