A check for $486 was presented by Wells Fargo to Dawn Darby, Kingman Area Manager for River Cities United Way. Monies were raised through a recent fundraising event in which team members purchased and sent 273 Candy Grams to fellow team members.

“Every year during our annual Community Support Campaign, our team members find fun new ways to help make a positive impact in their communities,” said Wendy Griffitts, River Cities district manager for Wells Fargo. “This year, one of their activities included selling Candy Grams to fellow team members. Our team members know that even small efforts can make a difference in their community and that their collective impact can be felt not only in communities across Arizona but across the country and in some cases across the globe."


22,685 people were helped saving $2.1M on prescription medication, an average of 41%.


13 K-12 students received dental referrals, 6 (47%) of which required additional work. The program saved those families an average of $109.79 per claim. 3 students received medical or vision care at an average cost of $83.33.


48 volunteers working 192 hours delivered oral health education and smile kits to 1,272 Kindergarteners, in 53 classrooms, at 20 schools, in 8 communities across 2 counties.
