NWFCU Foundation collects thousands of food items for local children
HERNDON, VA (April 22, 2019) — NWFCU Foundation recently ran a weekend meal program drive to collect non-perishable food items to provide nourishing meals for at-promise children to have on weekends. The Foundation received almost 3,000 food items and several hundred dollars in donations, many of which came from corporate partners Odin Feldman Pittleman (OFP) and Whitney, Bradley & Brown, Inc. (WBB)
“OFP has a strong culture of giving back, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the Weekend Meal Program Drive again this year,” said Odin Feldman & Pittleman’s Marketing and Business Development Executive, Kimberly Greer.
“The employees of WBB cleared their cabinets and went shopping to donate non-perishable food to children in need through the Weekend Meal Program Drive to help support their health and well-being,” said WBB’s VP Human Resources and Ethics Officer, Beth Skoletsky. “I am truly fortunate to work with so many people who sincerely care about others and partnering with NWFCU Foundation on various initiatives throughout the year directly helps the community and those in need, what a wonderful combination!”
The NWFCU Foundation holds several donation drives throughout the year to support their mission to empower youth. Find out more about their drives and scholarship program.
“The NWFCU Foundation is incredibly blessed to have such generous corporate partners,” said Interim Executive Director of the NWFCU Foundation, Robin Billings. “Their substantial donations will ensure that many local children don’t go hungry on the weekends.”
