A volunteer effort involving Google employees and HandsOn Bay Area led to the makeover of a Redwood City thrift store.

In a Facebook post Monday, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo County expressed gratitude to volunteers from Google and HandsOn Bay Area for helping beautify the thrift store at 2406 El Camino Real.

Google employees “categorized hundreds of pieces of delicate glass items, sorted/color coded/sized dozens of racks of clothing, built shelving and display units, and gave the dressing room area a little love with beautiful paint, all the while staying positive and eager to continue,” according to SVDP-San Mateo County.

HandsOn Bay Area, which helps coordinate volunteer projects, was credited with helping to organize the makeover.
