Thousands of real estate agents and employees with Long & Foster Real Estate, including those at the Greenville Sales office in Greenville, Delaware, rolled up their sleeves and took part in the company’s 20th annual Community Service Day this June. Long & Foster’s Community Service Day took place at its over 220 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, including its headquarters in Chantilly, Virginia. 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 Greenville Sales office chose to volunteer with the Mary Campbell Center, which provides a home for children and adults with disabilities. From the day the Mary Campbell Center opened in 1976, they have successfully maintained a truly home-like environment. The organization pride itself on always showing respect for every resident and in helping to establish and maintain personal dignity. Independence is enhanced, family members are always welcome, and the beautiful grounds and unique facilities are designed for each resident’s safety, comfort, happiness and well-being.
Every resident gains important support from a caring staff, giving volunteers, friends from the surrounding community, and, especially, from loving families. Because of this support, and because of their deep commitment and resolve, many of the residents have achieved higher levels of physical and intellectual ability than they had ever expected.
Agents from Greenville Sales office repaired decking on the path that winds through the beautiful gardens, providing a safe route for those in wheelchairs. The Center’s buses were washed, vacuumed and cleaned. The laundry received a fresh coat of paint. And, finally, agents spent some time with residents creating bird feeders made from oranges, peanut butter, bird seed and pretzels.
“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, the parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “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.”
