Northwest Federal Honors the Communities it Serves with “70 Acts of We”

Initiative pays tribute to the Credit Union’s 70th

Federal Credit Union
is celebrating its 70th anniversary
by working with its Community
, members, and employees to perform 70
Acts of We
(part of its “70 Years of We” celebration). The actions
aim to benefit the communities the Credit Union serves as well as the
members who have contributed to 70 successful years.

“Northwest Federal exists and thrives because of its members,” said
President and CEO of Northwest Federal, Chris McDonald. “’70 Years of
We’ and our 70 Acts are all about appreciating how far we’ve come as an
organization and celebrating what we, our community, members, and
employees, can do together.”

For the first Act of We, Northwest Federal celebrated National Soup
Month by donating 70 cans of soup to LINK,
, a local non-profit group dedicated to supplying emergency food
to people in need. The Credit Union challenged employees to match this
number with their own donations, resulting in a total of 700 cans

Other Acts of We in January included supporting an internal “MentorMe”
program for National Mentoring Month, sponsoring the International Spy
Museum’s SpyFest, holding a Westie’s Kids Club Event at the Children’s
Science Center for members, and donating art supplies and prize money to
the Loudoun Arts Council for their Next Gen Art program. Visit 70
Acts of We
throughout the year to see what Northwest Federal is
doing to celebrate its members and the communities they live in.
