The Long Realty staff and real estate professionals at the company’s Casas Adobes office are continuing their annual tradition of supporting US troops stationed in Iraq with a Long Realty Christmas Wish Drive. Long Realty has adopted the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.
The Long Realty Christmas Wish Drive will begin just after Labor Day and extend through the first week of November. During this time, Long Realty associates will collect cash and other essentials ranging from snack foods to chap-stick for the servicemen and women stationed on base. Letters of support and gratitude will also be included in the packages from home. On November 9th, the collected items will be shipped off for arrival on base just in time for Christmas.
“The Casas Adobes team looks forward to making Christmas a little merrier for our troops who make such tremendous sacrifices, we want them to know how greatly they are appreciated.” says Asst. Sales Manager, Diane Tierno.
Last year, the Long Realty team gathered enough items to fill more than 10 containers for shipment, which supported well over 500 troops. Some of the recipients of the Long Realty gifts are pictured here.
Pictured here in the Santa hat is Amelia O’Brien. Amelia is the sister of Long Realty Casas Adobes Listing Coordinator, Mandie O’Brien, and was in the Air Force Reserve while serving in Iraq last year. This year the adopted troop of over 1,000 servicemen/women has a personal connection to Long Realty Agents, Barbara & Jack Murray, whose client is serving at Bagram AFB in Afghanistan this year.
