Giving Back to Our Communities

Wells Vehicle Electronics is committed to supporting and improving the communities in which we work by helping local events and organizations spread awareness, raise funds and achieve their goals.

At Wells, we recognize a business is more than just a business. It’s a member of the community, a thread woven into the fabric of a town or a place that contributes to the greater whole.

But we also recognize that the communities we call home – including Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and Centerville, Iowa – have helped shape Wells into the company it is today.

To say “thank you,” Wells regularly sponsors local events and organizations, including fundraisers, benefits, walk/runs, holiday parades, food drives, sports teams, festivals and others causes that make our communities happier, healthier and stronger.

Check out a few events and partnerships we’ve worked on in the last few years and follow us on LinkedIn and Instagram for event announcements and photo recaps.

2021 Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in 2021 the Wells team organized donation events and activities to boost awareness, spread hope, raise money and help local women pay for living expenses while they undergo cancer treatments. All told, Wells and its associates donated $1,200 to the Caring for You Fund.

Getting Kids Ready for the School Year

Each year, Wells collaborates with the Boys and Girls Club of Fond du Lac to run a “Back to School” school supplies drive. Our associates donate supplies, encourage friends and neighbors to donate, and help fill up the brand-new backpacks.

In 2021, the drive helped 1,270 local students who received the supplies they needed to start off the semester on the right foot.

Honoring Our Local Military Veterans

In summer 2021, we teamed up with the annual Sand Bar Bash to raise money for the Northeastern Wisconsin chapter of Old Glory Honor Flight. The OGHF organization works tirelessly to send our veterans to Washington, DC to visit the war memorials that honor their service.

2021 Walleye Weekend Festival Run/Walk Sponsorship

The Walleye Weekend Festival is a favorite community event in Fond du Lac that donates its proceeds to local nonprofit organizations. Wells sponsored the run/walk event in 2021, and our team members also volunteered during the event registering racers, course marshaling and handing out water to participants.

2021 Food Pantry Fundraiser

In June 2021, Wells held a food drive and fundraiser during its annual Employee Appreciation Cookout to benefit the Fondy Food Pantry. Our team collected 12 full boxes of food and raised $325 to help needy families in Fond du Lac County.

Sponsoring the Envision Greater Fond du Lac Golf Outing

Wells Vehicle Electronics sponsored the 2021 Envision Greater Fond du Lac Annual Golf Outing to support the organization’s commitment to economic development in the Fond du Lac and Waupun region. Wells team members also participated in the event to help raise funds and awareness for the group.

Sponsoring the Dock Spiders Baseball Teamy Fundraiser

We’re a proud sponsor of the Fond du Lac Dock Spiders collegiate summer baseball team, a member of The Northwoods League.

Our support helps the Dock Spiders meet its mission “to provide affordable and memorable family fun to the Fond du Lac community for years to come” and allows us to host “The Best Seats in the House” group seating area at the team’s home at Herr-Baker Field.

Donating Toys for Local Kids

Each December, our Fond du Lac associates participated in a toy drive for the Toys for Tots campaign to help our community members in need. Our team generously donates toys and gifts for local children and families to help them celebrate the holidays.
