Person of the Week: Andrew Gale
This week’s Person of the Week is the founder of a local non-profit that works to raise money for charity while helping the environment.
Andrew Gale founded Bay Area Recycling for Charities started around five years ago with one truck.
Gale’s goal was to increase recycling efforts in communities through service, education, and charitable donation.
BARC now has 20 full-time employees, eight trucks, dozens of trailers and gives $25,000 to local charities and non-profits annually!
So, for his dedication to keeping communities clean and organizations funded, Andrew Gale receives this week’s title of Person of the Week.
