Annual event allows real estate agents, brokerage to give back to the local community
The York-Peninsula office of Long & Foster Real Estate, will participate in the company’s annual Community Service Day on June 8. The York-Peninsula office in Yorktown, Virginia will join the brokerage’s over 200 offices in the day of giving back by volunteering from April 27 to June 7 to support the Virginia Peninsula Food Bank in collecting food donations for the community. Food can be dropped off at the York-Peninsula office or agents from the office will pick it up.
“Every day, over 61,000 people in our community are at risk of missing a meal,” said Kelly Corbett, manager of Long & Foster’s Yorktown office. “We can’t think of a better way to give back to our community than providing food for those who can’t afford to feed themselves or their families.”
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.”
