On June 7, Wells Fargo volunteers came together to serve our community during United Way of Greater Atlanta’s Food Insecurity Week, a week focused on reducing hunger across our region’s 13 counties. As a 2018 Silence The Growl sponsor, Wells Fargo is working with us to fight food insecurity – especially for the 350,000 children in Greater Atlanta at risk of going without one or more meals each day this summer.

As a Vice President and District Manager at Wells Fargo, as well as a member of our South Fulton Advisory Board, Kevin Parrish is committed to this cause. Today, hear him share why he believes it’s so important to Silence the Growl of childhood hunger in Greater Atlanta.
