The Village of Midlothian office of Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 private residential real estate company in the United States by sales volume, will participate in the company’s 20th annual Community Service Day on June 7, 2017. The Village of Midlothian office in Midlothian, Virginia, will join the brokerage’s over 220 offices in the day of giving back by volunteering with From Crayons to Computers, a free school supply store for local teachers. The nonprofit focuses on school supply donations for teachers and their students and classrooms.
“We all know teachers who, unfortunately, have to use their own money to pay for supplies for the classroom due to budgeting issues. From Crayons to Computers is a wonderful opportunity give back to these professionals who do so much for our kids and community,” said Kristin Krupp, managing broker of the Village of Midlothian office.
Long & Foster sales associates and employees from throughout the company, including staff from its Chantilly, Virginia, headquarters, 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 nearly 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 operating officer 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.”
