​Ocean Cleanup Volunteer Projects Wells Fargo Branch Employees.

After attending a Create a Cleanup program through Ocean Blue Project, many participants choose to donate to the organization and become Annual Corporate Members

Wells Fargo Asset Management of San Francisco is one of many businesses contributing as Annual Corporate Members with donations supporting beach cleanups in the Bay Area as well as the Blue Schools Program, which educates and inspires youth to become beach stewards. 

In July of 2019, Wells Fargo employees (and one happy dog) escaped the Financial District and headed to Ocean Beach for a day of volunteer work where they collected several large compostable bags full of both land and marine-based debris, including a new dart board. Without this amazing team of beach stewards, this debris would have made its way out to the ocean and added to the already catastrophic damage done to coastal marine life.

A special thank you to the San Francisco Wells Fargo Asset Management department employee, Julie Parker, who organized a strong team and made this cleanup effort possible!
