Neighborhood Heroes - 2021

The San Jose Earthquakes and Quakes Foundation are humbled and inspired by the amazing work of our frontline communities and neighbors in this time of crisis. Each week, we’ll be featuring and highlighting the work of one fantastic neighborhood hero, showcasing the great work they are doing and the organizations our community can rally around, courtesy of Wells Fargo.

Additionally, a financial donation will be made to an organization or community project at the direction of each week's hero. Do you know a hero in your neighborhood?

In response to the current health crisis, Wells Fargo announced comprehensive steps to help customers, communities and employees. Starting with their customers, the company suspended residential property foreclosure sales, evictions and involuntary auto repossessions. In support of local communities, the Wells Fargo Foundation will distribute $175 million in donations to help address food, shelter, small business and housing stability, as well as to provide help to public health organizations. With respect to their employees, Wells Fargo expanded health benefits, identified child care solutions, optimized social distancing in branches, provided cash awards for front line staff, and allowed employees to work remotely when possible while remaining committed to helping their customers’ needs.
