Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) June 08, 2012 - RE/MAX Select Properties, Inc., a Northern Virginia Real Estate Company, is a frequent advocate of local charities and recently sponsored a food drive through the month of May, benefiting the Loudon Interfaith Relief. The organization supplies food assistance to those in need throughout Loudon County.
Several real estate agents and staff members donated items such as cereal, canned vegetables, peanut butter and hearty soups. Through their efforts, RE/MAX Select properties was able to collect 620 pounds of food, enabling a number of families to eat.
Broker/Owner Phyllis Stakem said, "As always the agents at RE/MAX Select Properties have surpassed our expectations in helping our community with their donations to the local food bank, we are proud to have been able to help feed our community."
In September 2011, the Washington Post listed Loudoun County as the “Wealthiest County in America.” However, approximately 19,000 people in Loudoun (six percent of the population) have been identified as “food insecure” or hungry.
Loudoun County food pantries receive generous donations over the holidays and winter months, but as summer approaches donations decrease significantly. Due to food pantries increased need during the summer months to feed children who are not receiving school-based meals, the county recently declared May as Hunger Awareness Month.
