Wells Fargo… Helping Hope’s kids grow

Jun 17, 2014 | Hope in the News

The Hope campus is now even more beautiful thanks to a group of volunteers from Wells Fargo.

Eight employees visited the Hope campus June 13 to plant flowers just west of the Administration Building. The Wells Fargo employees were assisted by about 12 students.

“We love coming here,” said Wells Fargo employee Amy Killam, whose uncle has a disability. “The first thing out of our mouths each year is, ‘What can we do at Hope?’”

It’s the third year staff members from the banking company have helped out at Hope. Previous projects included planting a vegetable garden and flowers.

The event was coordinated by staff member Carolyn Rush and the flowers, including petunias and salvias, were planted in two flower beds. The flowers were donated by Pleasant Nursery Inc. in Springfield.
