HomeFirst Realty and Wilkinson PM and individual members of our team are actively participating in improving their communities.
Wilkinson PM believes in protecting our environment. Over the years, WPM has participated in the annual trash pickup of Little Hunting Creek as part of the Potomac River watershed cleanup. We recycle everything possible. Living his values, Patrick Fogarty bought an electric car and built an energy-efficient EarthCraft home.
Wilkinson PM is proud to help support our military families through the Fisher House Foundation. The Fisher House Foundation offers shelter and support on the grounds of every major military medical center. It recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform, as well as the hardships of military service, by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that provided by the Department of Defense.
Fisher House Foundation facilities provide a comforting "home away from home" while a loved one is receiving care in a military medical facility. A long-term stay in a military hospital, sometimes thousands of miles from home, can mean expensive additional lodging and food costs. In recognition of the special sacrifices of our military families, Fisher House Foundation, through donations, provides homes on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. Each Fisher House Foundation offers a warm, compassionate environment where families find support and encouragement from others in similar circumstances.
By contributing to Fisher House Foundation, you too can make a difference in the lives of America's service members, veterans and their families when they need help the most.
The PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) Foundation of America is dedicated to our brave men and women in uniform who understand duty, honor, and sacrifice. Many have returned home with both the visible scars and the unseen wounds of war. As many as 400,000 service members live and struggle with the invisible wounds of war. Sadly, most think they are alone. Help us reach them. Help us help them at www.ptsdusa.org!
Wilkinson PM sponsors a Springfield Little League T-Ball team. Studies show that participating in team sports is an invaluable first step on the ladder to success in meeting education and career goals. Boys and girls learn to try hard and do their best working together for a championship or even for post-game snacks.
In 1959, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared the week beginning the second Monday in June as National Little League Week. During this Week local leagues are encouraged to work toward the Good Sport Award which provides local leagues the opportunity to recognize a Little Leaguer who has demonstrated superior qualities of sportsmanship, leadership, a commitment to teamwork and a desire to excel. Most importantly, the criteria for selecting the recipient is in no way based on the child's playing ability or personal statistics. The award was established to amplify the importance of Little League Baseball and Softball as a leadership training program, utilizing sport as a vehicle for instilling valuable principles of teamwork, discipline, compassion and handling adversity. Players can then apply those lessons in school, jobs and their family lives.
Teresa Croce has been an honored Girl Scout leader throughout the years her daughters have been in school. Her girls have won multiple badges and the Gold and Silver awards for community service, in addition to selling millions of boxes of everyone’s favorite cookies.
Lee Wilkinson is a passionate and active member of the community. On July 1, 2013, Lee received a letter of appreciation from the Supreme Court of Virginia for serving on the Fifth District Committee, Section II of the Virginia State Bar. Lee served on the Attorney disciplinary proceedings Committee for six years and was acknowledged for his "invaluable service to the legal Profession". Lee felt privileged to have contributed two terms to the preservation of a cause that he is so passionate about and continues to devote his time and resources to the community in other ways.
