Wells Fargo tallies Colorado contributions

Wells Fargo & Co. donated a total of $4.3 million to 1,200 nonprofit organizations in Colorado in 2012, the financial services company announced.

Wells Fargo employees donated an additional $1.3 million as well as a total of 28,000 hours in volunteer services.

Part of the effort came in response to wildfires that occurred last year. Wells Fargo donated $100,000 to the Red Cross and enabled customers to make donations through automated teller machines. Other recipients included the Alzheimer’s Association, Colorado Chapter of the American Cancer Society, Food Bank of the Rockies and Habitat for Humanity.
