GIVING BACK:  Long & Foster’s annual food drive was successful again this year, as our agents, staff, and clients donated dozens of bags of food items and frozen turkeys, plus gift cards and monetary donations, to the Holy Redeemer Food Pantry.  Holy Redeemer will distribute the food to local families in need.  Special thanks to Gina Reynolds, Branch Administrator, for coordinating our food drive effort, and Paul Leiser (13) for his help in collecting and delivering items.

Two car loads of food items were donated by L&F agents, staff, and clients.  The food was  collected and delivered to Holy Redeemer Food Pantry earlier this week by Paul E. Leiser and his grandson Paul, age 13.

FESTIVE FRIDAY & SNOWFEST SATURDAY arrive in Avalon after the Thanksgiving holiday.  Activities include music, shopping, a bounce house, ice skating, a tree lighting, and visits with Santa.
