Tri-Counties Bank Donation

Vangie Houle, Branch Operations, and Carly Deatherage, Treasury Management Implementation Specialist, were present as school Principals were invited to fill backpacks with highlighters, folders, binders and an endless supply of student essentials - all donated by Tri-Counties Bank. Chico Unified School District Principals were able to distribute the backpacks throughout their school sites, providing students with brand new materials that they otherwise couldn’t afford.
