Family Access Network receives $2,500 donation


The Family Access Network has received $2,000 from Wells Fargo to work with children, parents, and teachers to make sure that children have the tools they need to succeed in school and life.

Throughout the school year, FAN advocates will connect children and their family members to vital ongoing needs such as adequate food, clean, well-fitted, and seasonally appropriate clothing, health and dental services, and housing assistance.

Seasonal needs that FAN advocates often address in colder months include winter coats, snow boots, and heating assistance. Wells Fargo is a key partner in this work.

Wells Fargo supports thousands of national and community-based nonprofits annually to help revitalize and strengthen communities. They are among the top corporate cash donors among U.S. companies, donating $286.5 million to 14,500 nonprofits in 2017 to support critical social, economic and environmental challenges.

Wells Fargo and the Wells Fargo Foundation provide monetary support, expertise, and volunteers to national and local nonprofit organizations and causes that align with their business priorities, values, business expertise, and geographies. They focus their philanthropic activities on creating long-term, strategic relationships with nonprofits and other organizations to create innovative, sustainable solutions to meet local needs.

Unique to Central Oregon, FAN began in 1993 and currently employs 24 advocates in 55 public schools (K-12) and early childhood sites in Deschutes and Crook counties. The direct placement of FAN advocates within the public schools allows FAN to effectively reach disadvantaged children and families and connect them to essential basic needs.
