Wells Fargo Partners with Operation Warm in Chicago

The Wells Fargo Chicago team partnered with Operation Warm this year to provide new winter coats to 10,000 area children living in need.  Students at 10 Title I Chicago public schools received coats from Wells Fargo team members, as documented in this video produced by CPS High School students.  The partnership also included sponsorship of Operation Warm’s ‘Impact Beyond Warmth’ event with the Chicago Housing Authority and coat distributions at several Children’s Home + Aid facilities in suburban Chicago.  We are so grateful for the generosity of Wells Fargo team members and the Wells Fargo Foundation for creating one of our larger programs in the U.S.
