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.
Coats for Kids Drive - GOING ON NOW!
October 1 - November 30
We will be doing our standard collection 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, when the time comes, you can drop your donations at your nearest branch.
Helping Kids in Crisis
December 1 - December 31
We will be collecting 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.
Food for Kids Drive
February 1 – March 31
Hunger needs in our community continue to be amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic and the youngest members of the community - children – continue to be the most vulnerable. Through your continuous generosity, and our partnership with Giant Food, we are now collecting food items for all 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 – May 31
We will again be collecting diapers for our smallest in need, in conjunction with the Northern Virginia Diaper Bank. To donate, please purchase and send diapers online through our Diaper Drive Amazon Wish List. For the shipping address, select "Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation's Gift Registry Address" at checkout.
School Supplies Drive
June 1 – August 15
This year, we are hoping and anticipating all the kids will be getting back into their normal school routines. To that end, we are planning our annual School Supplies Drive beginning in June. Should it be necessary to shift gears, however, we will continue with another fundraiser aiding the kids of our community to weather whatever comes next.
