On August 25th, NICU Families Northwest was fortunate to spend the morning with employees of the Wells Fargo Home Mortgage office in Portland in a bid to be the 2017 beneficiary of their annual Community Support Campaign. It was an absolute pleasure to speak one-on-one with so many people about what we do, and we are sincerely honored to have won their majority employee vote.
The Wells Fargo Community Support Campaign is a month-long, 100% employee-funded giving program with nearly every single day in September offering fun, creative opportunities for employees to make a charitable contribution to our organization. Dollar by dollar funds are collected and on Friday the 27th of October we were welcomed to their office to receive a check for over $5,800.
As the largest donation we’ve received to date, these funds will have a significant and immediate impact in our community. It is a direct result of the generosity and kindness of Wells Fargo employees that we will be able continue our existing programs and begin to develop additional support services for local NICU families.
It deserves mentioning that the other local nonprofits, (Gales Creek Camp, Impact NW, Shriner’s Hospital, and the Returning Veterans Project), are doing incredible work in our community and we were honored to be considered among them.
