Wells Fargo & Company’s Mobile Response Unit has arrived in Chico, Calif., to provide housing recovery assistance as well as help for auto, credit card, personal lines-loan, student loan and small business loan customers in areas impacted by recent wildfires.
“Our thoughts are with those customers and communities that have been impacted by the devastating wildfires,” said Joanna Padilla-Mitchell, River Valley district manager. “The arrival of our Mobile Response Unit in Chico brings a variety of on-site assistance to help our customers as they begin the recovery process.”
The Mobile Response Unit is a 75-foot, heavy-duty commercial “office on wheels” designed to bring valuable information directly to Wells Fargo customers after a disaster. It has private offices and is equipped with computers and cellular data feed with satellite backup. The Mobile Response Unit is powered by self-contained generators.
Wells Fargo has pledged $1.75 million in donations to support wildfire relief efforts, with $225,000 going to the American Red Cross and the remaining amount to be disbursed to nonprofits located in affected communities.
