Thousands of real estate agents and employees with Long & Foster Real Estate, including those at the Ocean Front office in Virginia Beach, 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 Ocean Front office chose to volunteer with Camp Hope Haven. Agents and administrators were able to provide valuable man hours to prepare the shelter’s camp in anticipation of the more than 650 children that will attend camp over the next two months. Bathrooms were scrubbed spotless, and bunk beds were converted to picnic tables, sanded and cleaned to insure safe seating for the campers. They were also able to donate many items for the camp such as drinks and pool supplies. Jon Haug of Prosperity Home Mortgage furnished refreshments for the hard workers with a pizza party when they were finished.
“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.
