Ashburn, Virginia—Whether it's preparing for a holiday concert or serving a meal in one of the campus restaurants, the hourly employees of Ashby Ponds are being thanked for a job well done.  

Their service and dedication are recognized through the Erickson Living retirement community's Staff Appreciation Fund.  The 2018 campaign was incredibly successful, raising $245,700 from mainly resident contributions.  This total included gifts received from the resident-led Woodworking Club, Drama Club, Bingo Committee and Treasure Chest, as well as from 20 families with loved ones at Maple Grove, the community's continuing care neighborhood.

498 eligible hourly employees received distributions from the fund, less taxes, on December 4.

"The Staff Appreciation Fund is a tangible way for residents, their families and community members to express gratitude to the hourly employees of Ashby Ponds who have touched their lives in the past year," said Elisabeth Longworth, Philanthropy Manager.  "The party on December 4 was a wonderful holiday afternoon for all!"
