Wells Fargo gives $50,000 for tornado relief; customers can contribute starting Friday
Wells Fargo & Co. says it's contributing $50,000 to the American Red Cross/North Texas Tornado Relief Fund. And its customers can join the effort starting Friday by making donations to the fund at all Wells Fargo ATMs in DFW. Customers will not be charged a fee and 100 percent of donations will go to the American Red Cross, Wells Fargo says. The bank also asks that consumers and business customers affected by the tornadoes contact their banker or visit the nearest Wells Fargo branch to discuss financial options on a case-by-case assistance. Affected customers can also call the bank 24/7 at 1-800-TO-WELLS (1-800-869-3557).
“We’re reaching out to help our team members, neighbors, friends, families and customers who have been affected by the twisters that ripped through our community earlier this week,” said John Gavin, Wells Fargo's DFW regional president of community banking. “We’re also committed to helping community recovery efforts and will work diligently to help families and business owners return to their homes and daily routines.”
