Thousands of real estate agents and employees with Long & Foster Real Estate, including those at the Chesapeake office in Chesapeake, Va., rolled up their sleeves and took part in the company’s 18th annual Community Service Day on June 3, 2015. Long & Foster’s Community Service Day takes place at its over 180 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, including its headquarters in Chantilly, Va. The annual event provides an opportunity for Long & Foster agents and staff to give back to their communities through a variety of service projects, including food drives, park clean-ups and more.
The Chesapeake office chose to volunteer with the CHKD Thrift Store on Battlefield Boulevard this year. Participating agents sorted, organized and tagged donations that would be sold in the thrift store. The thrift store staff was amazing and was thrilled with the amount of work that the agents were able to complete.
“Community Service Day is a vitally important component of Long & Foster and our corporate culture of giving,” said P. Wesley Foster Jr., founder, chairman and CEO of The Long & Foster Companies. “Our Long & Foster family gains a tremendous sense of personal satisfaction by contributing their time and effort to the local communities in which we live and work. At a time when many charities and local organizations have a great need for assistance, we are honored to have the opportunity to help them.”
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.
