No Kid Hungry
2021 is here and Dreyfuss has selected No Kid Hungry as its 1st quarter charity - www.nokidhungry.org.
“There is no possible excuse for children to go hungry in this country. Yet it happens - every day, in every community.
According to the USDA, more than 11 million children in the United States live in "food insecure" homes. That phrase may sound mild, but it means that those households don't have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life. And that number dates from before the coronavirus pandemic. Today, projections show that 18 million children could face hunger this year.”
You can donate by giving cash/check to your Property Manager, Venmo or Apple Pay our Human Resources Director, or simply fill out our donation form to have a onetime or a continuous donation amount deducted from your paycheck.
Thank you for your support!

Dedication is an understatement as Cedrick and his team decided to draw up the plans and build by hand a firepit and outdoor seating area for the residents. We are proud to recognize Cedrick Brown as December’s Employee of the Month for a job well done, but we are even prouder that he is part of our team.

Linda Smith Remembrance
2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, but it just became a little tougher. We are sad to inform you of the passing of Linda Smith, our Administrative Assistant at 8600 Apartments in Silver Spring, MD. Linda was a 30-year plus veteran with Dreyfuss. During her tenure she held all possible positions at many communities. She accepted all assignments and performed them well, usually with a smile. We think she even offered a hand to the maintenance department on occasion.
Linda became a skilled professional in property management, then shared her knowledge with the next generation of managers and staff. She was an early member of the Dreyfuss Team and she provided a positive contribution to many communities in the D.C. Metropolitan region. Some more recently included 8600, Silver Spring House and Oakton Park.
Please offer some words of comfort to your colleagues who worked with Linda as we share in this loss.

To All of our Colleagues at Dreyfuss:
We are currently living in a time of unprecedented upheaval in our normal business and personal lives. Daily routines have been disrupted, institutions which all of us rely on have been shuttered and our ability to interact with our coworkers, residents, and families has been greatly reduced. New policies and procedures have been implemented on a daily basis and each of us is concerned with the health of our families and loved ones.
All of this has occurred so rapidly that it has been hard to catch our breath. However, having watched the way that each of you has stepped up during this unusual time, continuing to do your regular jobs while making major adjustments to your lives, we have been very impressed by the professionalism with which you have approached this challenging time. It is during moments like this that we realize what a wonderful group of coworkers we have. We are truly grateful for the care and effort you have put into accommodating the changes necessary to operate in the face of Covid-19.
We wish to thank all of you for your hard work and dedication and wish the best for you and your families as we work through this difficult time.
