When Marge Cabasagan is not at work supporting Wells Fargo’s global operations in the Philippines, you will likely find her growing vegetables at a home for orphans and the elderly.

On Sundays after church, she would often accompany Severino De Vega Cabasagan on his visits to Hospicio de San Jose, a 200-year-old institution in Manila that cares for more than 225 people, including orphans, survivors of domestic violence, and the elderly. There, she watched her grandfather selflessly give his time to better the lives of the less fortunate.
