Shop Studios Community Service organization, GANG GREEN, celebrates 10 years of community service in Manhattan!

May 4, 2007

When we began our business on West 49th Street our entire neighborhood was controlled by drug dealers, criminals and prostitutes. Jacques Rosas, a long time community organizer, and Eric Steding took one look then sprang into action and mobilized some 2000 volunteers, over 10 years, to pick up the slack and demand services from city officials with great success under cool calm leadership provided by Rosas.

In that time the group, working on the West side of Manhattan from 42nd Street to West 59th Street, have pulled together neighborhood watch, planted dozens of trees, shrubs and thousands of flowering plants. With help from two area High Schools and the Fashion Institute students they have painted over thousands of tags and graffiti and replaced it with public art, even organizing a capitol project to light a Hans Hoffman Mural, given away thousands of toys to Children in four Homeless shelters and worked a homeless out reach program to help those stranded on the streets of Hell's Kictchen.. The ad hoc group remains on alert to meet emergency demands like food drives and even sheltered Katrina survivors.

In these ten years the entire West side of Manhattan has benefited dramatically from the work setting a new standard and a better quality of life for everyone. Annual events like neighborhood clean up days, home less out reach, neighborhood watch, toy and food drives continue to make this neighborhood a community to this day.

Jacques and Eric are the founders and thier company Shop LLC has donated thousands of dollars and countless volunteer hours to create a better neighborhood. Thank you to all the volunteers for ten years of community service.
