Annual event allows real estate agents, brokerage to give back to the local community
The Strawberry Street Sales office of Long & Foster Real Estate, will participate in the company’s annual Community Service Day on June 19. The Strawberry Street Sales office in Richmond, Virginia, will join the brokerage’s 220 plus offices in the day of giving back by volunteering on June 19th at Strawberry Street in the Fan performing our annual neighborhood cleanup.
“Our agents participate in Community Service Day, and in particular, our annual neighborhood cleanup project, as a way to show support to our neighbors and give back to them in some small way,” said John VanderSyde, managing broker of the Strawberry Street office. “Our project is always well-received by friends and business owners on our street. We get considerable foot traffic due to nearby shops, restaurants, and business services like ours, so we do whatever we can do to brighten things up to benefit everyone. Being a good neighbor makes all of us better.”
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.”
