MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2008--U.S. Bank has selected the most recent recipients of the U.S. Bank Five Star Volunteer Award, which honors employees for their exceptional volunteer service in the community this year. To recognize the 136 outstanding volunteers located in 25 states, U.S. Bank will contribute a total of $100,000 to nonprofit organizations in their honor.

Recipients of the U.S. Bank Five Star Volunteer Award were chosen based on criteria such as community impact and depth of volunteer service. Nominations for the Five Star Volunteer Award were submitted by employees, coworkers and the organizations where U.S. Bank employees volunteer.

"U.S. Bancorp employees throughout the country donate their time and talents to local organizations that are important to them, and we're pleased to honor these 136 employees in particular who have demonstrated some of the most noteworthy achievements through their volunteer efforts."

Introduced this year, Five Star Volunteer Day gives all eligible U.S. Bancorp employees 8 hours of paid time off each year to volunteer in their community at organizations such as nonprofit or civic agencies and schools.
