SAN DIEGO – December 18, 2014 – Wells Fargo announced today a $50,000
grant to non-profit National Veterans Transition Services, Inc.
(NVTSI), commonly known as REBOOT. NVTSI is dedicated to assisting
veterans with adjusting to civilian life and securing meaningful
employment.  This is part of Wells Fargo’s Economic Opportunity Grant
Program that supports workforce development and job creation, particularly for veterans.
The $50,000 grant to REBOOT demonstrates Wells Fargo’s continued
commitment to providing support for San Diego’s growing population of
returning veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq and helping them
successfully transition into the civilian workforce.   Since 2012, the
company has donated over $175,000 to REBOOT, this contribution brings
the total to $225,000.  In addition to financial support, Wells Fargo’s
recruiters regularly coach REBOOT graduates on interviews skills and
conduct mock interviews. These coaching sessions help prepare graduates
for job networking events with local companies looking to hire skilled
“We’re honored and grateful for Wells Fargo’s continued generosity and
commitment to helping local veterans making the transition to the
civilian work force,” said Maurice Wilson, president of REBOOT and a
retired U.S. Navy Master Chief Petty Officer. “It costs approximately
$2,500 to take each individual through our program, and we do it
without charge to the veterans. This method has proven to be 97%
successful and saves our veterans time and taxpayers money. We need the
help of companies like Wells Fargo to help give those who, with the
right training and guidance, will continue to contribute to our economy
and quality of life.”
“Wells Fargo is proud to support our nation’s returning veterans and
their families,” said Brian Lee, Wells Fargo’s North San Diego area
president. “By supporting REBOOT we are furthering our commitment –
both locally and nationally – by making a significant impact on the
lives of men and women who have served our country so well.”
