1st Advantage Giving Tree

Throughout the month of December, the Foundation will be collecting items for the local military base baby pantries as well as the Portsmouth & Richmond Fisher Houses.

Visit one of our branches with a Giving Tree, available at the Kiln Creek, Ft. Eustis, Denbigh, Williamsburg Commons, Grafton, Hidenwood, Coliseum and Mercury branches.

Here’s how you can participate:

  • Take a flag from the tree.
  • Purchase the item on the back of the flag.
  • Bring the unwrapped item you purchased to the branch and place it under the tree.
  • Cash donations are also welcomed, just see a branch teller or click here.
  • Even if the branch you visit doesn’t have a Foundation Tree, they’ll still accept donations.
