Mountain West Bank employees removed graffiti from Meals on Wheels Spokane, for the last time.
Meals on Wheels Spokane has been a regular victim of graffiti. The City of Spokane Code Enforcement requires that businesses remove it within 10 business days. Graffiti removal is a costly and time consuming process for a nonprofit center. When this situation was brought to the attention of Mountain West Bank, the volunteers came to the rescue! Our volunteers painted and applied graffiti-resistant clear-coat on the building. The clear-coat applied in this project will prevent future graffiti from sticking to the building and will be easily washed off, requiring no further maintenance to Meals on Wheels.
Meals on Wheels Spokane provides breakfast and hot lunch meals five days per week to senior center members 60 years and older. Mountain West Bank finished the project with a donation to the center that will provide 300 meals. Thank you to our volunteers for your time, your service, and your enthusiasm to help fellow members of your community.

Day of Caring 2019
For the 6th straight year, employees of the Eagle and Boise branches at Mountain West Bank teamed up with other community volunteers to make improvements at the Ada/Eagle Sports Complex run by the the city of Eagle Parks and Recreation. They tilled soil and added seeds from native species of plant life for all to enjoy in the coming years!
Dozens of Mountain West Bank crew members worked on painting, weeding, washing windows and completed a makeover on a storage shed at the Senior Center in Hayden, Idaho. On a separate project, the crew cleared property, built and stained a fence, and painted a Habitat for Humanity home in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho! Way to go crew!
The Wood River Valley's Mountain West Bank employees (Hailey & Ketchum, Idaho), cleaned fruits and vegetables to help stock the Hunger Coalition's warehouse. Making a difference by making our community better is part of our mission, and our employees work at it not only on our Day of Caring but throughout the year.
The freshly groomed grounds and building at the SCRAPS building (Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Services) was courtesy of our hardworking Spokane Valley and North Spokane staff! The crew fetched their tools and trimmed, raked, scooped, collected and clipped all around the grounds.
