Northwest Bank Receives Governor's Volunteer Award
on Friday, September 16, 2022
Northwest Bank, Spencer, Iowa received a Governor’s Volunteer Award from Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg during a special recognition ceremony held September 15, 2022, in Storm Lake, Iowa.
Northwest Bank was honored with a group award by Laura Allen at the Elderbridge Agency on Aging for participating their Community Kindness Project. Several employees from Northwest Bank took time out of their days to helps seniors in Spencer with yard work. With this project, 6 seniors were served. Volunteers from Northwest Bank raked yards, pulled weeds, picked up debris, trimmed back trees and bushes. The seniors that we serve may not have had the financial or physical abilities to carry out these tasks on their own.
“Iowans take great pride in their deep and rich commitment for serving others—it’s in our DNA,” Gov. Reynolds said. “Iowa nice is the foundation of our state--you see it everywhere you turn-- Iowans volunteering their time to help others and improve their communities and our state. It truly is an honor to be able to recognize these individuals for their meaningful acts of generosity through the Governor’s Volunteer Awards and inspire others to do the same.”
More than 500 awards are being presented this year during five ceremonies across Iowa. It is estimated that more than 150 communities in Iowa were served by this year’s honorees.
Coordinated by Volunteer Iowa, the Governor's Volunteer Award program—now in its 38th year—provides an easy way for Iowa nonprofits, charitable organizations, and government entities to honor their volunteers with a prestigious, state-level award. More information is available at volunteeriowa.org.
