Wells Fargo Donates $500,000 for Winter Storm Relief in Texas

SAN FRANCISCO , February 24 /Businesswire/ - The devastating effects of several winter storms have left millions of Texans dealing with costly home damages and limited access to food and water. To help aid in relief efforts, the Wells Fargo Foundation is donating $500,000 to help individuals and families recover, including $50,000 to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief and $100,000 to Feeding Texas, a network of 21 food banks in the state. The remaining $350,000 will go to local nonprofits focused on repairing homes, particularly in low- and moderate-income communities, and community resiliency.

“The recent winter storms caused a wide path of destruction and emotional distress, and we want our customers, employees and communities we serve across the state to know we are here for them,” said Nate Hurst, president of the Wells Fargo Foundation. “We hope our donation helps local nonprofits expand their work and facilitate an equitable recovery from the severe weather. Importantly, we also wanted some of our funding to help build resiliency for the future so communities can better withstand the impacts of climate change.”
