Giving back to the community

The Fitzsimmons Group strongly believes in the importance of supporting our local community. We invite you to explore the information below to learn more about our community involvement.

Charitable Donations

In recent years the Hagerstown Branch of RBC Wealth Management has hosted an annual holiday gift wrapping client event to benefit the local Bester Community of Hope organization. Each year our branch adopts as many as 30 children and purchases gifts from their wish lists. Clients are then invited to enjoy a fun evening of gift wrapping and dinner. Additional wish list items are collected to benefit Hospice of Washington County, Inc. 

Shred Event

Since 2016, the Hagerstown Branch of RBC Wealth Management has held an annual shredding event where we invite clients and the public to bring any unwanted papers to the Hagerstown Suns Stadium parking lot where we have a shredding truck available for their use. It is our way of giving back to our clients and the community.
