On Saturday, April 28th Truebeck volunteers gave back to the community through a national team building event: Rebuilding Together. We remodeled a facility in East Palo Alto called Free At Last (http://freeatlast.org/), which assists recovering addicts and gives them a second chance to succeed in life. We replaced flooring in the common area of the facility, painted the exterior walls of their residential buildings and minor safety-related repairs (ie installing grab bars, exhaust fans, etc). We ended a day’s hard work with an onsite BBQ to celebrate. It was a great opportunity to work with the individuals living at the center to teach them trade skills and demonstrate the power of teamwork. Remember, we win as a team and high five a lot!

This past weekend we hit Ocean Beach again, for the 4th consecutive year competing in the Leap Sandcastle Classic. Teamed with Taylor Design, Interface Engineering, Audio Visual Design Group, and BKF Engineers; we worked with students from Lafayette Elementary in San Francisco, building a sandcastle inspired from their creative minds. (Read about the evolution of our final sandcastle design here.) After a dreary 8am start, through wind and rain; the team lived up to their name — making waves by taking away the coveted Best in Show 1st Place trophy! A huge and well deserved congratulations! "This is my 4th year coming out for the LEAP Sandcastle competition. It is something I look forward to every year. The energy, the participation, and the joy from the all the kids makes this an event I want to be continue to be a part of. All the kids involved were so engaged and really passionate about the quality of the sandcastle, that being a captain was a blast! We had an extremely successful day capped off by a 1st place trophy! My thanks go out to Lafayette for being so much fun to work with, the parents, and the other Truebeck, Taylor, and Interface Engineering volunteers for contributing to a successful sandcastle."

On Thursday, May 19th, 9-year-old Chelsea from Taft Community School learned why tobacco is not a healthy choice, that yoga is actually lots of fun, and what vegetables fresh from a local farmer’s market look like. Chelsea is one of more than 1,000 Redwood City School District fourth graders who attended the 16th annual Make Time for Fitness field trip at Red Morton Park in Redwood City. The event, a partnership between Dignity Health, Sequoia Hospital, the Redwood City School District Wellness Committee, San Mateo Health System, San Mateo County Tobacco Education Coalition, and several other community organizations, aims to educate children on healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Truebeck’s Team for Tomorrow volunteers were there to support this important health initiative, as well as partner with our client Dignity Health on a local cause right in our backyard. The interactive program featured a wildly fun kids concert and five activity stations: Drink Water First, teaching students to drink water rather than sweet beverages when they are thirsty. Friendship Fitness, with games focused on teamwork and cooperation. Fit Fun Yoga, demonstrating that movement and breathing is good for health and well-being. Farmers Market, with information on fruits and vegetables available locally. Tobacco-Free Me, highlighting some of the 4,000 chemicals found in tobacco products. More than 300 teachers, parents, and representatives from community-based organizations volunteered at the event. A big thank you to our volunteers for participating in the education of our youth to improve health. Check out all the fun they had! [embed]https://vimeo.com/167441324[/embed]READ MORE
