Northwest Federal goes green, donates to Appalachian Trail Conservancy
HERNDON, VA (November 18, 2016) —
As part of Northwest Federal Credit Union’s commitment to supporting the communities its members live in, the credit union recently held a “Go Green” campaign advocating environmental responsibility. For every member who switched from paper statements to eStatements, or signed up for eStatements when opening their credit union account during the campaign, Northwest Federal donated a dollar to the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. 2,652 members chose eStatements, representing over 30,000 paper statements per year and thousands of pounds of paper saved.
“We are proud to be the official credit union for Appalachian Trail Conservancy members and admire the dedication they show to preserving the trail for future generations,” said Northwest Federal’s President and CEO, Chris McDonald. “They have a strong spirit of community and we’re happy to partner in their continued efforts to protect the beauty and heritage of the trail for years to come.”
