In response to the Brotherhood Crusade’s COVID-19 Community Rapid Response Fund, Wells Fargo donated a $50,000 grant to help Los Angeles community youth, young adults and families during this critical time. The funds are designed for the most under-served communities that are being adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Wells Fargo is proud to support The Brotherhood Crusade in their mission of improving quality of life and meeting the unmet needs of low-income, under-represented individuals through impactful programming such as at-risk youth prevention, life & social skills training, pre & post-employment services, financial education and more,” said Jack Olree, Wells Fargo Senior Community Relations VP.

Their mission to protect and improve the health and wellness of the people of California by increasing access to health care, quality education, good jobs, healthy environments and safe neighborhoods is shining bright and igniting hope during these challenging times for the community and people we serve.”
The COVID-19 pandemic is a global emergency that is unprecedented in modern history. The ” Safer at Home ” mandate issued by the City of Los Angeles was effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. and resulted in school closings and mandatory virtual learning via home schooling. The order was extended through July 2020.
