Join Feeding America and Wells Fargo in the fight against hunger

Wells Fargo's Nili Sundown travels thousands of miles each year — via plane, boat, and even snowmobile — to ensure her customers have the financial resources they need to survive the wilderness of rural Alaska.
The summer season in Alaska offers a small window of time for rural communities to restock the supplies they need to survive the long, harsh winter ahead.

Wells Fargo team member and U.S. Air Force veteran Mark Durazo knows what it’s like to transition from military to civilian life, and he enjoys sharing his experience — and support — with fellow veterans.

His dad had been a cook for the U.S. Army, and his uncle had retired from the U.S. Air Force after serving for more than 25 years, so he decided to follow in their footsteps.
“Those two inspired me to want to serve my country,” Durazo said. “I wanted to give back what they had given.”

Nothing came of the conversation at the time, but the Community Development team asked him about it last year. This time, the idea became reality.
