NWFCU Foundation is committed to helping the community and helping those in need. We've planned a number of drives throughout the year which give you the opportunity to directly impact these efforts with your donations.
To make a donation, stop by a branch during any of these drive periods or you can make a monetary donation online.
Helping Kids in Crisis
December 1 - December 31
We collected new blankets and small plush toys to help comfort children in crisis situations. You may donate by purchasing and sending items through our Helping Kids in Crisis Amazon Wish List. Or, you can drop your donations at your nearest branch.
Coats for Kids Drive
October 1 - November 30
This year, we were able to collect an unprecedented number of coats, hats and gloves in all sizes to help families in need. Help us help children and families get through the cold weather months by purchasing and sending items through our Coats for Kids Amazon Wish List. Or, you can drop your donations at your nearest branch.
Food for Kids Drive
June 1 - August 31
Hunger needs in our community have been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and the youngest members of the community - children - are the most vulnerable. Because of your continuous generosity, we collected over TEN TIMES previous years' collections and spent well into the Fall delivering these food items to those in need. Help us help children and families with emergency food needs by purchasing and sending food through our Food for Kids Amazon Wish List.
April 1 – April 30
In true form, our members, colleagues and community rose to meet the occasion. We were able to provide the Northern Virginia Diaper Bank with over 51,000 diapers for our smallest in need. To donate, please purchase and send diapers online through our Diaper Drive Amazon Wishlist. For the shipping address, select "Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation's Gift Registry Address" at checkout.
Weekend Meal Program Drive
February 1 – March 30
We started collecting non-perishable food items to provide nourishing meals for children on the weekends; this quickly developed into a three month long food drive a few months later, in an effort to keep up with the low supply and high demand of hungry children and families.
