Annual event allows real estate agents, brokerage to give back to the local community
The Strawberry Street office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the nation’s No. 1 independent real estate brand by sales volume, will participate in the company’s annual Community Service Day on June 6, 2018. The Strawberry Street office will join over 220 offices in this day of giving back by volunteering to clean up the 400 block of Strawberry Street in the Fan District of Richmond, Virginia.
“Our ‘Strawberry Street Improvement Day’ has become an annual gift from our agents to the neighborhood. The residents and shopkeepers love what we do and have been vocal with their appreciation, said John VanderSyde, manager of the Strawberry Street office. “It is one of many volunteer opportunities our agents perform throughout the year for numerous worthy causes, but we trust this one will remain a tradition we can continue for years to come.”
Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its Richmond, Virginia offices, 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 50 years ago, 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 Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief executive officer of The Long & Foster Companies. “Community Service Day allows our team to make a positive impact on our local communities. 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.”
