ALEXANDRIA, Va.-HEW Federal Credit Union, located in Alexandria, Va., launched its expansion into Washington D.C. with its inaugural Financial Fitness Day April 24. Throughout the day residents of Southeast Washington enjoyed food, entertainment, rides for the children, and received vital financial information at each of the “10 Steps to Financial Fitness.” D.C. Councilman Kevin P. Chavous, representatives from the Mayor’s office, as well as local civic, religious and business leaders attended the event. Chavous spoke to participants of his desire to bring HEW Federal Credit Union to the neighborhood, about the importance of financial literacy for the residents of his Ward, and how a credit union, like HEWFCU, will bring fair and affordable financial solutions to the Southeast community, which he feels has been sorely in need of these types of choices for a long time. He praised HEWFCU for their diligence and commitment to serving the area east of the river, and for their efforts to bring financial education and community events to the area, as well as for their effort to be a part of the community. HEWFCU plans to bring a full array of financial services and financial education programs to the various communities east of the river and the greater Washington, D.C. area and putting the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” into practice there. “For well over a decade, HEWFCU has wanted to expand its presence in Washington, D.C. and bring financial guidance and choices to ALL of Washington, D.C.,” HEW Federal Credit Union Chair Patricia J. Ellis said.
