Wells Fargo’s long-term success is directly linked to the success of their customers and the communities they serve. Through a combination of strategic relationships with local and national nonprofits, grants, volunteer activities, and other community investments, they are creating solutions that help strengthen the communities in which they operate and grow local economies around the world. Wells Fargo’s giving is focused on the highest priorities within local communities and helping those most in need – housing, access to basic needs, jobs/small business and education.

Wells Fargo has been a proud partner of Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services (SFBFS) for many years. The company conducts financial education workshops in Spanish every other Wednesday for SFBFS’ Adult Education clients along with workshops in SFBFS’ Parent Education program four times per month. Wells Fargo team members will soon offer financial workshop courses in Farsi six times each month. SFBFS also integrates budgeting and financial literacy modules into the programs’ curricula using Wells Fargo presentation materials and Wells Fargo instructors. The company also generously supports SFBFS’ Food Bank Services and Family Services. Over the course of their partnership, Wells Fargo has provided over $1 million to SFBFS to support food distributions, fresh produce purchases, financial literacy classes, the Run to Feed the Hungry, the annual Turkey Drive and much more.

“SFBFS has really stepped up in the past years to provide stability in the food distribution for this region and they were the only ones who could or would take this on,” says Kevin Barri, Regional Bank President of Wells Fargo. “The community needs to support their work to support all the other food banks – they have increased those they serve by 10 times and the coordination, management, and flow of feeding our region has been significantly improved.”

Kelly Siefkin, SFBFS’ VP of Communications & Marketing, says, “Our partnership with Wells Fargo stretches over a decade. We are thankful for their creative and dedicated efforts to help families in need in our community. Their volunteers serve with a smile on their face and their financial support makes a tremendous difference here in Sacramento County.”

SFBFS’ programs and services would not be possible without the support of community-centered companies like Wells Fargo. Their support is an example of how together, we can support families and individuals on their journey to self-sufficiency and financial independence.
