Herndon, VA –Northwest Federal Credit Union (NWFCU) members and employees made it a holiday to remember for many families in the Foundation’s community this holiday season. The Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation (NWFCU Foundation) started the holiday season by hosting a food drive, collecting over 770 pounds of food to benefit local Northern Virginia children and families. Following the food drive, the NWFCU Foundation participated in a toy drive with Northern Virginia Family Service, collecting over 200 toys for children in the community.

In addition to the toy drive, the NWFCU Foundation sponsored the Children’s Holiday Party hosted by the Vienna-Tysons Regional Chamber of Commerce. This Holiday party, held annually, benefits children from local homeless shelters. The party is a fun filled way for these children to enjoy the holidays and for a few hours, to forget their worries.

For the fourth year, the NWFCU Foundation and NWFCU committed to adopting local families and giving them a Christmas to remember. Seventeen families were adopted in total and credit union employees enthusiastically and generously gave to these families in need. Everything from toys, food, blankets, gift cards, bicycles and clothing was collected for the local families! “I can’t imagine a better way to honor the spirit of the season” stated NWFCU President and CEO Gerrianne Burks. “Our employees and members truly know what it means to give from the heart!”
