SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC) announced today it will donate

Canadian Red Cross.

“We’re saddened by the flooding’s devastation and want to help victims
recover,” said Richard Valade, regional president of Canada for Wells
Fargo. “Working with United Way Worldwide, this donation supports the
incredible work by the Canadian Red Cross in communities where our team
members live and serve our customers.”
