Wells Fargo was represented by President Valley Coastal Market Joe Mathai, Vice President Community Affairs Officer Sandy Cha, Community Development Officer Gabriela Mello, District Manager Central Coast Mark Corella, and Santa Barbara Store Manager Pete Llena.

"We are delighted to present this check to Peoples' to further their mission to build affordable housing and programs leading to self-sufficiency for low-income households. Wells Fargo has a great partnership with Peoples. We know this money is in good hands," stated Mathai.
