In this time of need, Long & Foster agents know how important it is to stay connected, healthy, safe and supportive. That’s why, our agents are not only helping their clients, they are giving back to their communities in generous and meaningful ways during this unprecedented time.
From donating masks and delivering food for medical teams to buying ice cream for the whole town, here’s a look at some of the incredible acts of kindness our agents are doing to help their communities.
Surprised six families by having dinner delivered to their door from six locally owned restaurants. Photos of the family’s reactions sent from the delivery drivers were priceless and most recipients pledged to pay it forward.
