Herndon, Va. (January 23, 2020) – Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation recently held its inaugural Coats for Kids drive, collecting well over 300 winter coats, along with boxes of hats and gloves, to help keep children in Northern Virginia warm this winter.
“The Coats for Kids drive is near and dear to my heart. We live in one of the wealthiest areas in the nation and yet right here, countless children go without warm winter clothing,” said Executive Director of the NWFCU Foundation, Kaycee Childress. “Now, thanks to the huge hearts of our supporters, we have been able to provide winter gear for so many children to help them stay warm this winter season.”
The NWFCU Foundation was thrilled to be able to provide coats, hats and gloves to children at the InMed Opportunity Center in Sterling, Herndon Neighborhood Resource Center, Lorton Station Elementary, Hilda Barg Homeless Prevention Center, Lorton Community Action Center, Reston Police Station, Occoquan Police Station and the Prince William County Police Department.
