Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, has announced that its Prince Frederick office, located in Prince Frederick, Md., recognized the company’s annual Community Service Day by volunteering on May 25, at the Stars and Stripes Festival, at Veterans Memorial Park in Chesapeake Beach, Md. The community event honors our veterans.

The Prince Frederick office is just one of Long & Foster’s nearly 180 sales offices throughout the firm’s seven-state, Mid-Atlantic, Washington, D.C. and Northeast regions, to perform service projects within the communities they serve this spring, according to Paul Lee, office manager.

“Long & Foster of Prince Frederick is participating in Community Service Day because we want to give back to the community that supports us. We chose to volunteer to help at our local Stars and Stripes Festival on Memorial Day weekend, because it honors our fallen heroes, veterans, and their families with this free event for all,” Lee said.

Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its headquarters located in Chantilly, Va., will participate in a variety of volunteer activities such as working to clean up, refurbish and repair nearby parks, schools, shelters, homes, day care centers and local organizations that provide crucial services to the community.

Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies. “Our sales associates and staff thoroughly enjoy contributing their time, effort and donations to make an impact in their local communities. Long & Foster truly believes in the spirit of giving and we’re dedicated to making sure we’re taking care of those around us, whether it’s through our annual Community Service Day event or one of our other many projects, such as the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. We’re glad to give back.”
