Volunteer Spotlight: Wells Fargo
Fifteen employees from Wells Fargo hung up their work clothes recently and went to work at our Youth Resource Center clothing store. The "store" is an important part of our center, as the youth are able to select the clothing and shoes they like and want to wear – building self-esteem and enabling them to better represent themselves when applying for jobs and housing. The Wells Fargo crew assembled new shelving so all of our donated clothing can be displayed for easy "shopping." This preserves the dignity of our clients, saves our youth advocates from having to run to the back to find items they think will fit, and frees them up to spend more one-on-one time with the youth.
