On March 25, 2019 the 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union Foundation hosted a Medal of Honor Day Celebration Dinner featuring Medal of Honor Recipient, Retired U.S. Army Captain Florent "Flo" Groberg. During the evening, Captain Grouberg shared his story, 8 Seconds of Courage, inspiring the audience to see the opportunity in challenging environments and to find the strength to complete any mission. All proceeds from the event benefited the 1st Advantage Foundation.
On August 25, 2018, the 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union Foundation hosted a baby shower for 50 expectant Military Moms! Each expectant mom walked away with a bunch a goodies to spoil their bundle of joys!
1st Advantage Federal Credit Union Foundation believes that Christmas should be a magical time for all children- especially those in military families who faithfully serve. This year we are proud to partner with Operation Homefront to help military parents in need give their children the gifts they are unable to afford.
This project would not have been possible with the caring staff at 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union, and their annual “1st AIDE Day” event. Each year on Columbus Day employees volunteer for local projects that help those in need. During this year’s 10th annual event, more than 450 gifts that have been donated by the Foundation for military children were wrapped and prepared for families to share.
The Foundation is also proud to partner with The Carousel, a local children’s boutique, who donated nearly 100 pieces of clothing to make this year’s event even more special for local military families. On December 9, 2017 volunteers from the Carousel and the 1st Advantage Foundation will team up with Operation Homefront to distribute the donated clothing and gifts to 200 deserving families.
