RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Access National Bank (“Access”) is committed to making a difference in the community it serves and is proud to extend its partnership with Western Fairfax Christian Ministries (WFCM) with a $2,500 contribution to hundreds of individuals and families in the Dulles Corridor.
“We are honored to maintain a long-standing relationship with Access National Bank,” Rebecca H. Kolowé, WFCM Executive Director, said, “because they, like us, understand that hunger is not just something people experience during the holidays. Access makes a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors throughout the year by working as a financial mentor.”
Access employees have served on the WFCM Board and assisted with fundraising through networking in the community.
“Their guidance has supported close to 400 families and more than 1,000 individuals visiting our pantry every month,” Kolowé added.
WFCM serves the Chantilly, Centreville, Clifton, Fairfax Station, and Fair Oaks regions of Fairfax County by providing emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, and other basic necessities to families living below the poverty line (defined by an annual income of $23,850 for a family of four, according to the U.S. Census Bureau).

We are privileged to be afforded the opportunity to share our nonprofit industry expertise and help contribute to WFCM’s impact and growth.”
