The Arlington office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, will take part in the company’s 18th annual Community Service Day held this week. The Long & Foster office in Arlington, Va., will join the brokerage’s over 180 offices by hosting a fundraising event on Thursday, June 4 from 5-7 p.m. at 4600 Lee Highway, Arlington, VA 22207.

“For the third straight year we continue to partner with the Crystal City-Pentagon Rotary Club in effort to end homelessness in Arlington County with the PASSAGEWAYS program,” Manager Suzanne Simon said. PASSAGEWAYS and the Long & Foster Arlington office work together to collect donations of furniture and household items throughout the year to furnish apartments for participants in Arlington County’s Permanent Supportive Housing Program. “Making a house a home for Arlington residents with disabilities and critical housing needs is essential to the success of the county’s housing program,” Simon explained.

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 during Community Service Day. In past years, these activities included cleaning up, refurbishing and repairing nearby parks, schools, shelters, homes and day care centers, and providing other assistance to local organizations that offer crucial services to the community.

“Long & Foster has had a long-standing commitment to supporting the communities in which we live and work and this event is one example of how we do that,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & FosterCompanies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “It’s such a wonderful opportunity for our Long & Foster family to make an impact in our local communities, and everyone thoroughly enjoys contributing their time and effort. Whether it’s through our annual Community Service Day or one of our other charitable projects, we’re truly glad to give back.”

In addition to its dedication to serving the community, Long & Foster Real Estate is committed to the success of its sales associates and is an industry leader in providing the latest and best tools, technology and training. For more information, visit www.LongandFoster.com.
