The Kempsville Office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, took part in the company’s 18th annual Community Service Day on June 3, 2015. The Kempsville office in Virginia Beach, Va., joined the company’s over 180 offices in the day of giving back by volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House in Norfolk.
The Kempsville office of Long & Foster Real Estate supports the vision of Wes Foster, the company founder, of giving back to the community in which its agents and employees live and work. “Our office members admire the Ronald McDonald House and their efforts to help lessen the burden for over 1,000 families each and every year as these courageous families face medical challenges involving their children. We are pleased to support these families and the Ronald McDonald House,” said Robert Beck, the office coordinator for the project.
Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its headquarters located in Chantilly, Va., participated 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.
