Karen West, business banking manager for Wells Fargo, presents Brenda Hewitt, president of United Way of Southeast Alaska a check for $7,177. The money represents Wells Fargo's corporate match for the 2009 campaign. Employees of Wells Fargo also donated $7,177 to 39 partner agencies under the United Way umbrella throughout Southeast Alaska.
"Because of Karen's remarkable leadership in Juneau, her team really stepped up and gave back during Wells Fargo's 2009 United Way Campaign!" said Stephanie Garrard, Wells Fargo's Alaska contributions manager.
"Wells Fargo is a terrific community partner," said Hewitt. "This is the first time since I've been here that we have triggered the corporate match. It will go a long way toward supporting the social services in Southeast Alaska. We are very grateful. This is a fantastic gift."
