Northwest Federal Honors the communities it serves with “70 Acts of We”
Initiative pays tribute to the Credit Union’s 70th anniversary
HERNDON, VA (February 23, 2017) — Northwest Federal Credit Union is celebrating its 70th anniversary by working with its Community Partners, members, and employees to perform 70 Acts of We (part of its “70 Years of We” celebration). The actions aim to benefit the communities the Credit Union serves as well as the members who have contributed to 70 successful years.
“Northwest Federal exists and thrives because of its members,” said President and CEO of Northwest Federal, Chris McDonald. “’70 Years of We’ and our 70 Acts are all about appreciating how far we’ve come as an organization and celebrating what we, our community, members, and employees, can do together.”
For the first Act of We, Northwest Federal celebrated National Soup Month by donating 70 cans of soup to LINK, Inc., a local non-profit group dedicated to supplying emergency food to people in need. The Credit Union challenged employees to match this number with their own donations, resulting in a total of 700 cans donated.
Other Acts of We in January included supporting an internal “MentorMe” program for National Mentoring Month, sponsoring the International Spy Museum’s SpyFest, holding a Westie’s Kids Club Event at the Children’s Science Center for members, and donating art supplies and prize money to the Loudoun Art League for their Next Gen Art program. Visit 70 Acts of We throughout the year to see what Northwest Federal is doing to celebrate its members and the communities they live in.
