Quarterly Drives

We host quarterly drives to provide resources to youth in the communities that Northwest serves.   Northwest employees, members and partners have the opportunity to participate in these drives by contributing items, donating and volunteering. To make a donation, stop by a branch during any of our drives, make a monetary donation online, or elect to donate through employee payroll.

Food for Kids - February
NWFCU partners with Giant Foods, Helping Hungry Kids and 7 Loaves Services to provide children qualifying for free and reduced meals with nutritious food for the weekend.  In 2023, we collected over 10,000 food items.  Help us exceed this goal in 2024!

Diaper Drive - May
NWFCU Foundation partners with the NOVA Diaper Bank to distribute diapers to families who cannot afford them. Help us drive change from the bottom up.

School Supplies - July
The annual Back to School Drive gifts school supplies to free and reduced meal students in local schools. 

Coats for Kids – November
In partnership with Operation Warm, we supply coats and winter accessories to students. Jamie Gadley, Principal at Dranesville Elementary School said, “As I hear the winter wind blowing outside, there is peace in knowing that over 100 students are prepared for the winter weather” in response to our 2023 drive. Your donations make a difference!
