Piedmont Community Service Crew
In April of 2018, Piedmont Community Service Crew(PCSC) finished their 12th annual Rebuilding Together Oakland project. Piedmont Community Service Crew is a particularly special organization given the fact that it is predominantly youth lead. Five Piedmont High School students, along with two adult advisers planned this project which would be finished over a course of four prep days and two main work days. Not to mention the High School students who raised the $12,000 sponsorship necessary to such a large project. The house that they worked on is owned by the Sloan family; Mrs. Sloan, the owner, who is in her 80’s, her adult daughter and two college aged granddaughters. During some interim years in Sacramento, they rented out their house. Four years ago, they decided to relocate back to their home, but then spent two years trying to evict the tenants and found that the tenants utterly trashed the place. The appliances and fence were ripped out, windows were broken, their floors were left ripped up and covered with trash. In their effort to restore balance back to their house they hired contractors, who ended up either taking their money and then running or did the job poorly creating future problems. PCSC was able to remodel their entire kitchen and bathroom, add flooring to the top floor, repaint the entire house, build a gutter, two fences, fix six windows and a ceiling, and cut down their overgrown backyard. All together close to 100 people volunteered for a total of 50 hours, to make this project the huge success that it was. PCSC went on to win an award at their 4th of July parade which was focused around community service.
