U.S. Bank donates to TESSA

U.S. Bank in southern Colorado on Aug. 14 donated 300 gift bags containing toiletries for children who have been in homes with domestic violence to domestic violence prevention agencies in four cities, including TESSA in Colorado Springs.

Other agencies receiving donations were the YMCA Domestic Violence Shelter in Pueblo, the Family Crisis Center in Canon City and the Arkansas Valley Resource Center in La Junta.

Donations from U.S. Bank's 150 southern Colorado employees included toothbrushes, shampoo, soaps, combs and other everyday items.

The volunteer effort is part of U.S. Bank's national sponsorship of the sixth annual Community Build Day, which calls for financial services companies to help build their communities through activities such as food drives and fundraising walks. This year, U.S. Bank employees are participating in more than 170 projects in 119 cities.
