Wells Fargo & Company recently presented a donation of $5,000 to Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, Connecticut's premier youth mentoring organization. The gift came about through the efforts of the company's 90 State House Square office in Hartford. The donation will be used to move children in need off Nutmeg's waiting list and into productive, life-affirming match relationships with caring adult role models.

"A key element of our corporate vision and values," said Robert Hannon, Senior Vice President at Wells Fargo, "is our longstanding commitment to helping build strong and nurturing communities. Last year alone, Wells Fargo donated $275.5 million to communities throughout the United States. At Wells Fargo, we believe our communities must be strong in order for our business, economy and country to be strong. That's why we're happy to support Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters and other similar organizations doing such commendable and much-needed work in the neighborhoods, cities and towns where our customers, friends and employees live, work and attend school."

Andy Fleischmann, President & CEO of Nutmeg Big Brothers Big Sisters, said, "We thank Wells Fargo for its community-building orientation and support of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Thanks to Wells Fargo's generosity, a number of children in need will now have the opportunity to be matched with inspirational mentors - caring adults who will help these great children fulfill their potential and realize their highest aspirations."
