Firm’s Largest Grant in Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas Region for 2015
Fort Smith, AR -(AmmoLand.com)- The U.S. Marshals Museum this week announced it has received a $25,000 gift from Wells Fargo Advisors – the firm’s largest grant in the Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas region for 2015.
A portion of the grant will be used to sponsor the museum’s Descendants Day, which is scheduled for July 25 in Fort Smith.
“We’re grateful for Wells Fargo’s support of the museum and its continued investment in the Fort Smith community,” said Jim Dunn, president and CEO of the museum. “Wells Fargo has a long history with the U.S. Marshals Service, and we look forward to a continued partnership with the organization as we move forward in building the institution.”
Co-hosted by the Fort Smith National Historic Site, the 2015 Descendants Day drop-in event will give community members an opportunity to share their artifacts, documents, photographs and stories with the future U.S. Marshal Museum. The free event will be held at Frisco Station at the foot of the Garrison Avenue Bridge on July 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“The museum is such a natural fit considering our company’s longstanding history with the marshals,” said Wells Fargo Advisors’ Robert O’Neal, who serves as branch manager of Wells Fargo Advisors in Fort Smith. “We’re proud to support the museum’s efforts to obtain more artifacts and stories through Descendants Day.”
The Fort Smith branch of Wells Fargo Advisors is part of the Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas Complex, which includes 15 branch locations and more than 130 financial advisors. Wells Fargo has five branches in the northwest Arkansas region, including Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Rogers, Springdale and Berryville.
The gift to the U.S. Marshals Museum is part of the Wells Fargo Community Affairs program, which invests in local community efforts such as financial education, healthy aging, arts and culture and workforce development.
