Event allows real estate agents, brokerage to give back to the local community
The Winchester, Virginia office of Long & Foster Real Estate, will participate in the company’s Community Service Day on June 8. Agents and employees will join the brokerage’s over 200 offices in the day of giving back by volunteering at Highland Food Pantry in an effort to fill the shelves with a drive-by food and/or monetary donations.
“With grocery and gas prices increasing we would like to help those less fortunate and fill the shelves at the Highland Food Pantry. We believe in their mission to provide food and other assistance to those in need and engage our community in the fight to end hunger,” said branch manager Sue Ann Goodwin.
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 Jeffrey 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.”
