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. The programs help supply food to youth and families in need.

Northwest Bank offered to match funds up to $500 for both programs.  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 good supply of food items was also collected for both programs.

Northwest Bank employees from Arnolds Park and Milford presented a total of $2,291.00 to benefit the Okoboji Backpack Program and Northwest Bank employees from Spirit Lake presented a total of $1,245.00 to benefit the Spirit Lake Backpack program.
