In the wake of the recent devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, The Long & Foster® Companies, Inc. – which includes Long & Foster® Real Estate, Inc., the largest independently held residential real estate company in the United States – today announced a partnership with the American Red Cross to offer a company-wide donation matching program of up to $25,000 to support ongoing needs caused by the storm.
“Giving back to the community in which we serve has been a vital and important part of the culture of Long & Foster and our family of agents and employees for over 40 years,” said P. Wesley Foster, chairman and chief executive officer of The Long & Foster® Companies. “As a family owned real estate and financial services company, we truly understand the sense of security provided by having a safe and comfortable place to call home. Our team is honored and committed to be partnering with the American Red Cross to give back to our community and ensure affected families have the means to get back on their feet, recover, and rebuild their homes.”
Donations will augment the American Red Cross’ ongoing hurricane relief operations, which are providing food, water, shelter, supplies, and comfort to those who continue to be affected in the aftermath of the storm. Areas particularly hard-hit span the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, including portions of New Jersey and Pennsylvania where Long & Foster does business.
