​On August 11th, InterWest’s Chico office organized a very fun & successful school supply drive which will help provide much needed backpacks to organizations in the community. With the help of Shawna Batham of Project School Ready, InterWest employees filled 75 backpacks to help kids start the school year with the tools they need to feel prepared and ready to learn.

The 2 hour Build-a-bag event also included an Enchilada Cook off. Congratulations to the top three finishers and thank you to everyone who participated!

  • 1st place-  Linda Mickey
  • 2nd place- Natalie Howeson
  • 3rd place- Vickie Andres

A very special thank you to Tammie Baiz & Dan DiMeo for leading this initiative, to Hunter Smithson and Liz Collodi for setting up the supply tables & to Jessica Dunn for helping to organize the Enchilada cook off.

Great job Chico!
