U.S. Bank Accepting Nominations for Volunteer Awards, Honoring Employees for Outstanding Volunteer Efforts

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 27, 2009-- U.S. Bank is now accepting nominations for the fifth annual U.S. Bank Five Star Volunteer Awards, a program which honors the extraordinary volunteer work of its 58,000 employees and supports local nonprofits.

Through the Five Star Volunteer Award program, U.S. Bank will recognize more than 100 employees who provide exceptional volunteer service to a nonprofit organization in their community. In addition to providing recognition for each employee who receives the award, U.S. Bank will award the nonprofit up to $1,000 in honor of the employee.

“Volunteerism plays a key role in helping our communities thrive, and we’re proud that so many of our own employees volunteer for local organizations,” said John Pacheco, director of the U.S. Bancorp Foundation. “The U.S. Bank Five Star Award program provides a great opportunity for us to pay tribute to the extraordinary volunteer efforts of our employees who dedicate their personal time, talent and energy to the causes that mean the most to them.”

To nominate a U.S. Bank employee for a Five Star Volunteer Award, request a nomination form by sending an e-mail to fivestarvolunteer@usbank.com. The nomination deadline is May 15, 2009, and the winners will be announced in third quarter of 2009.

U.S. Bank supports its employee volunteer efforts through a number of ways in addition to the Five Star Volunteer Award. The company allows all eligible employees eight hours of paid time off each year to volunteer in their community, and U.S. Bank employees participate in community outreach activities organized through the company’s 55 local employee-led Development Network chapters.
