United Way Worldwide has honored Wells Fargo as the largest workplace campaign in the entire United States for the ninth year in a row.

Wells Fargo employees across the nation pledged $85 million to 40,000 schools and nonprofits in 2017 through the company's annual Community Support and United Way Campaign. The total includes $835,794 pledged by employees in Oregon and S.W. Washington.

"We're grateful to Wells Fargo and its team members for their growing investment and commitment to building stronger communities," said Brian Gallagher, president and CEO of United Way Worldwide. "Whether it's volunteer financial coaching, charitable giving through their workplace campaign, helping to fight hunger or supporting new job opportunities, Wells Fargo is leading across the board to make a difference in every community across America."

A Record Two Million Hours
Wells Fargo employees also volunteered a record two million hours in 2017, the equivalent of more than $48 million (based on the value of a volunteer's time as estimated by the nonprofit Independent Sector).

"I couldn't be prouder of our team members who, year after year, exhibit selfless commitment to strengthening the Oregon Region communities we serve and enriching the lives of others," said Region Bank President Tracy Curtis of Portland.

"Our team members' generosity underscores one of our company's most important core values and inspires the investments that we'll continue to make in our communities," added Region Bank President Cindy Johnson of McMinnville.

Wells Fargo adds to reward for info about the 'Froggy Robber' (Photo) - 02/21/18

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Wells Fargo announced today a reward of up to $10,000 for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person known as "the Froggy Robber" who robbed Wells Fargo bank branches in Vancouver on Feb. 12, Raleigh Hills on Jan. 11 and Wilsonville on Dec. 27.

The funds are in addition to the reward of up to $10,000 the FBI is also offering for information about the suspect, who the FBI believes also robbed two other banks in the region since last October.

According to the FBI, witnesses have described the suspect as a clean shaven Hispanic man, approximately 20-40 years old, 5'1'- 5'5" in height and weighing 130-160 lbs. The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information concerning any of the robberies should call their local police department or FBI office at (503) 224-4181.

Wells Fargo and the FBI will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount, based primarily upon an evaluation of the value of the information provided. If there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Wells Fargo and the FBI.

"We have found rewards are an effective way to help law enforcement identify bank robbers," said Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Unger. "The message we are sending to criminals is that if you rob a Wells Fargo bank, we will work with law enforcement agencies to relentlessly pursue and prosecute you."

The FBI wanted poster for the suspect is online at http://bit.ly/2BIBUk8.
