Long Realty Cares Foundation Joins Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness Project

For more than 30 years, Habitat for Humanity has built homes for impoverished Tucsonans, but Habitat for Humanity Tucson does so much more than new construction! Long Realty Cares Foundation (Long Cares) is again joining Habitat for Humanity Tucson as the title sponsor for the Neighborhood Partnership Program (NPP), which includes the A Brush with Kindness projects.

The goal of Habitat for Humanity Tucson’s A Brush with Kindness projects are to help families maintain the exterior of their homes while bringing volunteers and neighbors together by helping a homeowner in need. Through exterior home repairs, individuals can live in safe, decent homes and restore hope and pride to their community.

Long Cares is not only donating funds, but will also be providing volunteer agents and employees for Habitat’s annual 9/11 Building Freedom Day kick-off, as well as for a variety of A Brush with Kindness projects throughout various Tucson communities.

This year on 9/11, Long Cares agents and employees will be repairing several existing homes throughout Tucson via the A Brush with Kindness program. Additionally, each of our twelve Long Realty branch offices will provide volunteer agents and employees for their own day to work on an A Brush with Kindness project. The agents and employees will go out to a homeowner in need, oftentimes someone elderly, disabled, or a veteran, to work on exterior repairs.

“We are honored to once again join with Habitat for Humanity Tucson by providing volunteer agents and employees as well as support funds which will so positively impact our Tucson community and the people living in it. Long Realty supports local community efforts, and we know that Habitat for Humanity projects are some of the most effective ways to see community growth,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of Long Companies.

This has been an incredibly successful program that is very meaningful to the homeowners and positively affects the surrounding neighborhood. Last year, Long Cares helped Habitat directly impact 96 individuals through the A Brush with Kindness projects. These individuals have in-turn helped others, and their neighbors have been inspired to improve their homes, making the ripple effect wide-reaching.

Since its inception in 2002, Long Cares has donated over $2 million to more than 170 local charitable organizations. For more information on the Long Realty Cares Foundation, please visit www.longrealty.com/pages/longrealtycaresfoundation.

Long Realty Supports Trees for Tucson Initiative

Summer may be winding down, but the temperatures outside are still hotter than ever. In an effort to add more shade trees to our communities, Long Realty Company joined Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild in his campaign, in partnership with Tucson Electric Power, to plant 10,000 trees in local schools, neighborhoods, businesses and homes for 2014. Long Realty offered to donate 1,926 trees in honor of our company’s founding in 1926.

Long Realty offered clients, friends and partners the opportunity to have a free tree delivered to their home or business at no cost. Participants chose among Velvet Mesquites, Blue Palo Verdes, Sweet Acacias and Red Push Pistaches.

Long Realty Trees were distributed through the Trees for Tucson program from October 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014. Long Realty’s participation provided nearly 2,000 additional trees to the community. Of the approximately 9,600 trees disseminated under the Mayor's 10,000 Trees Campaign, Long Realty was responsible for nearly 25% of them.

“Helping our local community is part of Long Realty’s Core Values of Integrity, Excellence, Compassion, Leadership and Teamwork”, said Rosey Koberlein, Long Companies CEO. “Planting trees increases the value of our homes, the livability of our neighborhoods, and encourages a sense of pride in our communities. Long Realty is proud to lend support to the Mayor’s campaign and watch Tucson’s trees grow.”
