Volunteers from local Wells Fargo branches, in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County, built octagonal benches and formed a spiral labyrinth using pavers at Nova Blanche Forman Elementary School as part of the bank’s Day of Service.
Wells Fargo volunteers worked alongside Big Brothers Big Sisters adult mentors, Little Brothers and Sisters and their parents to create this special environment at the school.
Wells Fargo’s partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County extends beyond the school grounds into the classrooms. The bank granted $50,000 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County to support the implementation of the bank’s Hands on Banking® initiative in schools across Broward County.
The program, taught by local Wells Fargo volunteers, teaches students about money, savings and budgeting using age-appropriate, noncommercial, interactive and entertaining tools.
“Wells Fargo consistently stands with us in support of helping children reach their biggest possible potential through life-changing mentoring relationships,” said
Ana M. Cedeño, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County. “We’re grateful for their partnership and appreciate their generous donation of volunteer time and financial support.”
