Long & Foster's Charles Town, W.V., Office to Host Community Service Day

The Charles Town 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 on June 3, 2015. The Charles Town office will join the brokerage’s over 180 offices in the day of giving back by supporting Jefferson County Ministries by collecting monetary donations, collecting much-needed food and canned goods for the food pantry, as well as gently used clothing items for the organization’s clothing closet.

“It’s very gratifying to be able to give back to the people of Jefferson County for our annual Community Service Day, as so many people often fall victim to difficult financial situations and are in dire need,” said Managing Broker Nancy Williams and Community Service Day Coordinator Carol Graves.

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.
