Thousands of real estate agents and employees with Long & Foster Real Estate, including those at the Tri-Cities Southpark office in Colonial Heights, Va., rolled up their sleeves and took part in the company’s 18th annual Community Service Day, which was recognized in June. Long & Foster’s Community Service Day takes place at its over 180 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, including its headquarters in Chantilly, Va. The annual event provides an opportunity for Long & Foster agents and staff to give back to their communities through a variety of service projects, including food drives, park clean-ups and more.
The Tri-Cities Southpark office chose to participate in multiple projects. On June 15, the Tri-Cities Southpark office chose to volunteer with Colonial Heights/Petersburg SPCA and SNIP, another animal charity, by collecting donations.On July 17, the agents set up an Anthem LemonAid stand in front of the office. The money collected selling cups of lemonade was donated to help find a cure for childhood cancer at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.

Wesley Foster Jr., founder, chairman and CEO of The Long & Foster Companies. “Our Long & Foster family gains a tremendous sense of personal satisfaction by contributing their time and effort to the local communities in which we live and work.
