Doughnut Dollars For Seniors — Wells Fargo employee Tom Unger delivers the cash proceeds from two Krispy Kreme doughnut sales that he and other Wells Fargo employees held this month to support the Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County. The effort raised $641 for the nonprofit group based in Oregon City. Pictured with Unger is Senior Council Executive Director Christi Bird. Unger volunteers on the board of the Senior Council, which provides low-cost and free services to seniors to save them from financial and/or physical abuse. The doughnut sale was part of Wells Fargo’s annual, company-wide Community Support Campaign, which ran all of September.
