2011 Northwest Care's Christmas Fund Drive

During the 2011 Holiday season the Northwest Cares committee hosted a Christmas Fund Drive for Northwest Bank employees to give a little extra and their donations would be matched. Across the Northwest Bank families (16 locations) employees donated more than $5000 during this year’s Christmas Fund Drive and with the Bank’s match, were able to give over $10,000 back to those in need in our communities to have a brighter holiday!
