Northwest Bank gives $2000.00 to area Backpack Programs
on Monday, February 5, 2018
Northwest Bank locations in Milford, Arnolds Park and Spirit Lake hosted an effort to raise money and food items for the Okoboji and Spirit Lake Schools Backpack Programs. This program helps supply food to youth and families in need.
During the month of November, Northwest Bank offered to match funds up to $1,000 for both programs. We are happy to announce that the goal was exceeded, thanks to caring and giving individuals and businesses in our communities!
Northwest Bank employees from Arnolds Park and Milford presented a check for $1,000 to benefit the Okoboji Backpack Program. The total amount raised for this program was $2,015.00!
Northwest Bank employees from Spirit Lake presented a check for $1,000 to benefit the Spirit Lake Backpack program. The total amount raised for this program was $3,913.01!
We are proud to be involved with this incredible ministry and we would like to sincerely thank everyone in the community for their support and generosity. We extend a special thank you to Perkin’s Restaurant for being a drop off location as well and collecting food items.
