Wells Fargo Summer Food Drive

Posted: Updated:

The Wells Fargo Summer Food Drive is June 1 - June 15 happening all around the Valley.

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons, food-collection drives help fill the shelves of organizations that feed the needy. By summertime, those shelves are nearly depleted. Wells Fargo is helping to replenish those supplies during the company's summer food drive, June 1 to 15.

People can take food donations to any Wells Fargo Community Banking, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Finance and Wachovia Banking stores in Arizona.

The most needed food items are: Non-perishable canned goods of all kinds (no glass containers); Dried pastas, beans and rice; Proteins including canned tuna and other fish and meats, and peanut butter
