Some weeks ago, Realtor Win Raynor invited me to be a part of Long and Foster (L&F) Cares. This is a group of Realtors within the L&F community who have banded together to raise awareness and resources to help out the needy. I thought it was a great opportunity to give back to our community as I think and feel that at times we get so involved in making the next sale that we may forget about those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Filling A Need-The Attraction
For our first event we are calling in a Paper Shedding Company to allow folks to shred up to two boxes of paper at no cost. We are only asking for a donation of canned foods for a homeless shelter's food bank. This event will be held on May 8thfrom 9am to 12pm at the Providence Square Shopping Center (L&F Kempsville Office) Parking Lot in Virginia Beach.
If anyone out there in the AR community knows or has a good idea for raising awareness within the community, please let me know. We are only a small group trying to make a difference, but I believe that together we can help a lot of people who are in a rough time in their lives. And let's face it; this is a time that a group like this can be used to fill a much desired need.NOTE: Please forgive me for not having all the appropriate names up above. I promise to fill them in before the end of the week. -Joe
