Now through August 11th

InterWest’s Chico office is once again partnering with  Shawna Batham, founder of Project School Ready to provide filled backpacks for children living in transitional housing, shelters and other local organization including  Esplanade House, Catalyst Women’s Shelter, Boys and Girls Club.

InterWest’s Dan DiMeo and Tammie Baiz are once again spearheading the collection drive at the Chico office aimed at providing 95 filled backpacks this year.

If you would like to donate supplies or make a monetary donation, please contact Tammie Baiz at InterWest’s Chico office for a list of needed supplies or email Shawna at

Let’s ensure that as many kids as possible start the school year with the tools they need to feel prepared and ready to learn.
