HERNDON, VA (May 26, 2017) — Nearly 550 Northwest Federal Credit Union members recently had over 22,000 pounds of documents shredded on-site for free at the Credit Union’s shred event, part of Northwest Federal’s 70 Acts of We in honor of their 70th anniversary. Recognizing the importance of safeguarding their members’ financial information and identities, the Credit Union encouraged members to dispose of sensitive documents on-site at the event.

“Our 70 Acts of We are about finding unique and meaningful ways to support our members, employees and the community as they’ve supported Northwest Federal for the past 70 years,” said Senior Vice President of Enterprise Outreach, Victoria Gillespie. “Protecting our members from identity theft is a core component of being their lifetime financial partner.”
