Wells Fargo Customers Give More Than $1 Million To American Red Cross Through ATMs

In just over a week, Wells Fargo customers have donated more than $1 million to the American Red Cross for hurricane relief by utilizing the donation feature at Wells Fargo ATMs across the nation.

“Superstorm Sandy has left millions of people in need of Red Cross disaster assistance, and in the midst of the biggest Red Cross disaster response in five years, a second storm brought even more disruption to some of the very same communities,” said Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the Red Cross. “We are so appreciative of Wells Fargo and its customers for their support of our work to help these families and communities get back on their feet.”

“We know our customers want to help and we are glad we can make it easy for them to give so generously to those in need,” said Jonathan Velline, head of Wells Fargo ATM Banking and Store Strategy. “We thank them for their contributions that are already making a huge difference in relief efforts.”

Wells Fargo customers can still donate to the American Red Cross relief efforts through Nov. 13, 2012, at most of the 12,000 Wells Fargo ATMs across the country (with the exception of Kansas, Missouri, and Washington, D.C., due to local restrictions).

On October 30, Wells Fargo announced it is giving $1 million for relief efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, including $250,000 for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to support relief efforts the agency is directing throughout impacted areas in the region. The remaining $750,000 will go to support nonprofits conducting grassroots relief and recovery efforts in affected areas.

Fees waivers extended through Nov. 12 for three states

Wells Fargo has extended through Monday, Nov. 12 its waiver for the fees it normally charges its customers for using another bank’s ATMs. Wells Fargo will also allow customers with time accounts (CDs) to withdraw funds from these accounts without incurring an early withdrawal penalty. These fee waiver extensions are available in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, the states continuing to experience the most impacts from Hurricane Sandy.
