Wells Fargo is donating $1,000 to Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County in Oregon City in honor of Tom Unger, who works for the company in Portland as its regional Corporate Communications manager.
Unger, a Milwaukie resident, won the grant for the local nonprofit group through Wells Fargo's Volunteer Service Award program.
The SCCCC provides services not available anywhere else for home-bound, frail, vulnerable and geographically isolated individuals. Its programs promote independence, improve quality of life and prevent or end abuse, neglect (including self-neglect) and exploitation of at-risk seniors and adults with disabilities. Unger serves on its board.
'Tom has shown an extraordinary commitment to his community,' said Don Pearson, Wells Fargo's Oregon Region president. 'His giving spirits not only help communities but also help us better determine how our company can support and enhance this region.'
Wells Fargo employee winners are selected by an internal selection committee, which evaluates the employee's personal commitment to the organization, effectiveness of their work and the value of their work to their community.
