Spirit Lake – Bank Midwest donates to the YMCA of the Okobojis Reading Buddies program.

Whether you’re looking to escape on an adventure or want to learn something new, reading can take you there. There are so many benefits to reading, that it’s hard to list them all.  Here are just a few:

  • Provides entertainment
  • Improves brain activity
  • Decreases stress
  • Enhances creativity

A study by Pew Research Center concluded that reading for fun among 9 to 13-year-olds is at its lowest levels since the mid-1980s. Recently, Bank Midwest donated 40 Reading Buddy teddy bears to the YMCA of the Okobojis Reading Buddies program. Reading Buddies pairs adults with kindergarten-aged children attending Okoboji, Harris-Lake Park, and Spirit Lake schools.

“Reading is fundamentally important to our children and the overall strength of our communities,” said Luke Donnenwerth, Market President at Bank Midwest. “One of our values at Bank Midwest is to be a life long learner. I can think of no better way to live this value than to pick up a good book.”
