Community Enhancement Project

Posted on

As part of TradeGig’s ongoing effort to support local communities, TradeGig joined other community groups two weeks ago and participated in a local community project in San Francisco.  TradeGig and other community groups spent a day restoring a school that was in dire need of new landscaping but did not have the financial backing to maintain the upkeep of its classrooms and playgrounds.

The project began at 9:00am when TradeGig and other volunteers arrived at the school to receive their “assignments.”  Assignments included repainting exteriors and interiors of the school, repairing fixtures, removing graffiti from building walls, and improving the general appearance of the school’s buildings.

TradeGig’s co-founder, Alex Chan, also participated in the event, and partook in applying masking tapes and resurfacing walls inside the classrooms.

“We are delighted to support local community projects aimed to create and maintain stable and healthy communities,” said Alex Chan, Co-Founder of TradeGig. “To be able to support and give back to our own community is truly an honor for TradeGig.  TradeGig will continue to dedicate its available resources to service projects that have lasting impact and ties to our community.”
