Backpack Program 2023

Northwest Bank locations in Milford, Arnolds Park and Spirit Lake organized efforts to raise money and gather food items for the Okoboji and Spirit Lake Schools Backpack Programs. These programs help supply food to youth and families in need.

Northwest Bank matched funds up to $500 for each program. We are happy to announce that the goal was exceeded, thanks to caring and giving individuals and businesses in our communities! In addition to monetary donations, a generous supply of food items was also collected for both programs.

Northwest Bank employees from Arnolds Park and Milford presented $2,515.00 to benefit the Okoboji Backpack Program and Northwest Bank employees from Spirit Lake presented $2,619.00 to benefit the Spirit Lake Backpack program. 

Northwest Bank employees 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.
