The 1st Advantage Foundation is committed to giving back to our local military community. 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. Please consider contributing to this fun and worthy cause!

  • 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.

All items will be given to local military base baby pantries to support E1-E6 service members and their families. We will also be supplying the Portsmouth & Richmond Fisher Houses with items they need to make families of patients comfortable during their stay.
