1st Advantage FCU Kicks Off Annual Food Drive

YORKTOWN, VA (August 5, 2013) — 1st Advantage Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce its annual food drive in support of Hunger Action Month. As a local credit union, 1st Advantage recognizes its responsibility to take an active role in supporting organizations that contribute to improving our community. With the holidays upon us, and the need to stock up the Foodbank shelves, 1st Advantage is proud to step up and help replenish those shelves at a time of great need.

From the beginning of August through mid-October, collection bins will be available at all 1st Advantage branch locations. Members and the general public are invited to use these bins to donate non-perishable food items for families in need. Donations will benefit The Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula. Members may also make their donations on-site at our Member Appreciation Festival that is being held on Saturday, October 5th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at our Kiln Creek Branch located at 110 Cybernetics Way, Yorktown.

Each year, 1st Advantage collects and donates food to the local community. Past drives have collected more than 3,000 pounds of food for families in need. This year, our goal is to collect 5,000 pounds of food.
