At Denver Rescue Mission we get to witness some of the most incredible acts of kindness in Colorado every day. One of these acts of kindness was captured through a group of excited volunteers wearing vibrant red shirts that said “Wells Fargo Volunteers.”
Last month a group of Wells Fargo bankers brought their zest for life to The Crossing when they went to serve lunch. Denver Rescue Mission received an incredibly kind and generous $150,000 grant from Wells Fargo for the Mission’s STAR Transitional Program. Wells Fargo employees wanted to go a step further by volunteering directly with the program they were supporting.
The STAR Transitional Program aligns with Wells Fargo’s priorities of workforce development, affordable housing and education of low-income individuals, and revitalization of low-income neighborhoods.
“Our Commercial Banking team was privileged to serve lunch to the men, women and families participating in the programs offered at The Crossing. What a great opportunity that the dedicated staff of Denver Rescue Mission and The Crossing provide to their residents as they make the transition from homelessness and despair to security and purpose. We will definitely be back to serve in this and in other capacities to support their mission,” Karl Bausch, Wells Fargo Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking, said.
For years, Wells Fargo has supported thousands of national and community-based nonprofits to help revitalize and strengthen communities in which they operate and grow. They focus their philanthropic activities on creating long-term, strategic relationships with nonprofits and other organizations to create innovative and sustainable solutions to meet local needs.
The Mission is incredibly grateful for this generous gift from Wells Fargo. With this support we will be able to continue to change the lives of those transitioning out of homelessness. Join us in thanking this incredible organization!
