The Falls Church, Virginia, office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 private residential real estate company in the United States by sales volume, will participate in the company’s 20th annual Community Service Day on June 7. The Falls Church office joins the brokerage’s over 220 offices in the day of giving back by volunteering at the Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter.
“We participate in the Community Service Day because, as reflected in our core company values of trust, family and excellence, we are committed to providing exceptional service to the community where we live work and play,” said David Gillis, managing broker of the Falls Church office. “Volunteering at the Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter is important because everyone deserves a place to call home. At the Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter the Northern Virginia Family Service works toward preventing and ending homelessness.”
Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its Chantilly, Virginia, headquarters, 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.
“Since our founding nearly 50 years ago, we’ve been dedicated to giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and our annual Community Service Day event is one example of how we do that,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Community Service Day allows our team to make a positive impact on our local communities, and our agents and employees thoroughly enjoy this opportunity to contribute 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.”
