Employees from Wells Fargo and Rockwell Automation to collaborate in service

More than 30 employees from Wells Fargo & Company and Rockwell Automation are teaming up Friday for community service projects focused on enhancing aesthetics and community in the Harambee neighborhood. Employee volunteers will paint and stain porches for homeowners, decorate and fill planters in the neighborhood, and create window boards youth can decorate to hang over boards on abandoned properties.

The projects will support the efforts of Riverworks Milwaukee, a nonprofit devoted to developing economic prosperity by providing resources to residents and business in Riverworks neighborhoods. Volunteers will work from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Wells Fargo is contributing $10,000 to Riverworks Milwaukee along with its employees’ time. Rockwell Automation is also donating $30,000 to the United Way Days of Caring, a campaign from Sept. 10 through Sept. 21 that links volunteers with area nonprofit agencies to participate in community service projects.

“We are grateful to the employees from Wells Fargo and Rockwell Automation who have given their time to join the more than 2,300 people who have volunteered as part of this year’s Days of Caring,” said Mary Lou Young, President and CEO of United Way of Greater Milwaukee. “We know that when people work collaboratively we can create real, long-lasting change and improve the quality of life for everyone in our community.”
