Long & Foster’s South Boston Office to Host Community Service Project

The South Boston office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the largest independent residential real estate company in the United States, will take part in the company’s 18th annual Community Service Day in which the brokerage’s over 180 offices will give back to their communities. Though the company wide event will be held on June 3, the South Boston office’s project of sponsoring a pet supply drive will take place through June 30, 2015.

“Our South Boston office is proud to sponsor a pet supply drive for the Halifax County Humane Society and the Halifax County Paws and Claws SPCA,” Manager Scotty Felton said. “A few suggestions of items that can be donated include: canned and dry puppy and kitten food, puppy pads, kitty litter pans and litter, shavings, bath towels, bleach, crates, collars and leashes. Items can be dropped off at the Long & Foster South Boston office at 3510 Old Halifax Road across the street from Walmart now through June 30.”

Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its headquarters located in Chantilly, Va., will participate in a variety of volunteer activities for 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 & Foster Companies, 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 and projects 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.
