We had a wonderful morning with Wells Fargo’s volunteer team. On Friday, September 20th, local bankers formed an assembly line inside of the warehouse here at the food bank, and went to work filling red mesh bags with nutritious snack-sized foods. It was Wells Fargo’s corporate Dedicated Day of Service and they chose to come to Community FoodBank and fill backpack food bags that benefit local elementary school students. See more photos in the gallery, below.
The group of enthusiastic volunteers varied in number, between 10 and 15, as some started off the morning and then others came in later and relieved each other from duty or just to take a break.
“We’re ready to go and we’re so happy to be here!”
Terrie Fuentes, Vice President/District Manager at Wells Fargo
With our stock of backpack bags replenished, we are ready to continue working alongside the Hollister School District and help them serve approximately 600 students per month. Thank you, Wells Fargo — thank you, team!
