A Look Back on Wells Fargo’s Compassionate Support of the Central Texas Food Bank During the 2023 Winter Storm and Beyond


As the Central Texas Food Bank extends our gratitude to Wells Fargo, we reflect on the profound impact their unwavering support has had on our community, especially during times of crisis. Last year's devastating winter storm brought unprecedented challenges to our community, and it was through Wells Fargo's generous assistance that we were able to provide crucial aid to those in need.

During 2023, Wells Fargo demonstrated their commitment to our cause with a significant Winter Storm Grant totaling $50,000. This funding played a pivotal role in our efforts to alleviate the suffering caused by the storm, ensuring that families had access to essential food supplies during a time of immense hardship. Additionally, Wells Fargo employees exemplified their compassion and solidarity by contributing through employee giving initiatives, further amplifying the impact of their support.

The Winter Storm Grant and employee contributions were not isolated acts of kindness but rather part of Wells Fargo's ongoing dedication to addressing food insecurity in Central Texas. Looking back at their support from 2020 to now, it is evident that Wells Fargo's commitment has been steadfast and transformative.

In 2020, Wells Fargo's combined giving totaled $33,100, comprising both employee contributions and substantial grants. This support included grants with designated funds for general operating expenses and additional funds specifically allocated to our Mobile Food Pantry program. These funds provided vital resources that enabled us to expand our reach and serve even more individuals and families facing hunger.

As the years progressed, Wells Fargo continued to demonstrate their generosity through both financial contributions and volunteer efforts. In 2021 and 2022, employee giving, accompanied by corporate giving amounted to over a combined $4,000, underscoring Wells Fargo's commitment to making a meaningful difference in our community. These contributions further fueled our mission to fight hunger and nourish our neighbors in need.


Collectively, from 2020 to 2023, Wells Fargo's combined giving to the Central Texas Food Bank reached an impressive total of over $80,000. This significant investment has been instrumental in enabling us to expand our programs, enhance our services, and ultimately make a profound difference in the lives of those we serve.

In addition to their financial support, Wells Fargo has also demonstrated a commitment to community engagement through volunteerism. With 59 volunteers dedicating a total of over 425 hours of their time, Wells Fargo employees have actively participated in our mission, embodying the spirit of compassion and service.

As we honor Wells Fargo, we extend our heartfelt gratitude for their continued partnership and steadfast support. Together, we are not only addressing the immediate needs of our community but also building a brighter, more resilient future for all. Wells Fargo's compassion and generosity serve as an inspiration to us all, reminding us of the profound impact we can make when we come together to support those in need.
