Annual event allows real estate agents, brokerage to give back to the local community
The Severna Park, Maryland, office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 independent residential real estate brand in the United States, will participate in the company’s 21st annual Community Service Day. The Severna Park office will join the brokerage’s over 220 locations in the day of giving back by volunteering at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Oyster Restoration Center on June 13. The Long & Foster team will help to restore the native oyster population in the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries during the event.
“Our community service is a vitally important component of Long & Foster and our corporate culture of giving. We choose to volunteer for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation since the Bay has bestowed so much joy to all of our lives, and we want to make sure it continues on in all of its glory for future generations,” said Tim Blanchfield, manager of the Severna Park office.
Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company 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 in 1968, 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 Jeff Detwiler, president and CEO 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.”
