Wells Fargo initiates Team Up for our Schools campaign

Wells Fargo Bank is promoting a Team Up for our Schools campaign, which is running until Sept. 13. A customer can earn up to $30 for their local school district by participating in several ways. For every new consumer checking account with direct deposit opened in a Wells Fargo office in your school district, the bank will donate $10 to the district. An additional $10 will be given to the district when you open a consumer Wells Fargo Package, a combination of a checking account plus three or more additional accounts or services tailored to fit your needs. Another $10 will also be donated for Bill Pay enrollments completed between July 14 and Sept. 13 by visiting wellsfargospecial.com and entering the keyword “Schools.” To qualify, a minimum of one bill payment must be completed by Oct. 12. Bill pay enables customers to manage and pay bills online, anytime.Congratulations to Laurren Elshof, Miss Burning Mountain; Terryn Weise, Junior Miss Burning Mountain; America Weise, Burning Mountain Princess; and Jasmine Gonzalez, Junior Burning Mountain Princess.
