Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc. announced that thousands of its sales agents and staff, including those at the Roanoke and Botetourt offices, rolled up their sleeves and took part in the company’s annual Community Service Day. Long & Foster is the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States.

Long & Foster’s annual Community Service Day takes place at its nearly 180 offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic, Washington, D.C., and Northeast regions, including its headquarters in Chantilly, Va. The annual event provides a day for Long & Foster agents and staff to give back to their community through a variety of service projects, including collecting food for those in need and cleaning up local parks, among many other projects. Though Long & Foster’s Community Service Day was recognized on June 4, the many offices work with organizations on other days surrounding the recognized date.

Agents and staff from the Roanoke and Botetourt offices joined forces to assist The Roanoke Rescue Mission Distribution and Recycling Center on June 5. The day was spent sorting donated items and preparing items to be shipped to various locations served by the center. Agents and staff that took part include Asia Smith, Christine Whittaker, Kellie Brown, Fawn Foley, Jeff Reynolds, Dennis Harper, Stevie Holcomb, Norman Craft, Bitsy Davis, Glenda Morris, Indu Balaram, Doug Trexell and Bonnie Cecil.

“This annual event, now in its seventeenth year, is a vitally important part of Long & Foster’s culture,” says P. Wesley Foster Jr., chairman and CEO of The Long & Foster Companies. “Our sales associates and employees gain 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 an extra set of hands in getting the job done, we are honored to have the opportunity to assist 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.
