David Reznick of Reznick Group wanted to really feel Yachad’s impact first hand before we honored him at this year’s November 4th Community Builders Bash at the Katzen Arts Center. And so he and his employees at Reznick Group reported for work on Friday not at their Bethesda offices, but instead at Ms. Washington’s home in the Brightwood neighborhood of Washington, DC. Lead by one of Yachad’s trusted Construction Managers, Justin Barrows, the group scraped, sanded and painted Ms. Washington’s house, giving her more than just a fresh coat of paint, but a fresh start in a home she has lived in for over 30 years.
Reznick Group not only worked on the home, but sponsored the repairs as well. With sponsorship funds of $5000, Yachad was able to do major plumbing repairs, drywall repairs, roofing repairs and electric repairs before the volunteers heading into the home. Over the years of living on a fixed income, Ms. Washington struggled to keep up with the major repairs that were needed. Thanks to David Reznick, Reznick Group and Yachad, Mrs. Washington no longer has these worries.
