Wells Fargo to Contribute $100,000 to American Red Cross International Response Fund to Aid Victims of Tsunamis in Indian Ocean
San Francisco — December 29, 2004
Wells Fargo & Company said today it will contribute $100,000 to help victims of the tsunamis in the Indian Ocean. The contribution will be to the American Red Cross International Response Fund to provide food, shelter and other emergency needs. “The tsunamis have had a devastating impact on a part of the world where many of our customers and team members have family, friends and cultural connections,” said Wells Fargo’s chairman and CEO Dick Kovacevich. “Millions of survivors no longer have access to shelter, food or clean water, which raises concerns about epidemics that could harm thousands more. On behalf of all our team members at Wells Fargo, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.” Wells Fargo & Company is a diversified financial services company with $422 billion in assets, providing banking, insurance, investments, mortgage and consumer finance for more than 23 million customers from more than 6,000 stores, the internet (wellsfargo.com), and other distribution channels across North America and elsewhere internationally. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. is the only "Aaa"- rated bank in the United States.
