When Carpinteria-based software company Procore isn’t busy innovating in The Cloud for the construction sector, the company’s workers (known colloquially as Procorians) can be found scurrying around beneath the clouds and sun, at the edge of the bright blue Pacific. On June 3, 2016, the local tech company will be participating in its annual Procore and the Pacific beach cleanup.

In partnership with Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, approximately 300 Procore employees will descend on East Beach to remove trash, bag carelessly tossed bits of debris and otherwise rid the sand of unsightly jetsam, all in an effort to keep the local shoreline clean and safe for all beachgoers.

“Procore employs a number of Santa Barbara natives and transplanted out-of-towners, who have come to enjoy the beautiful coastline that we are lucky enough to live and work along,” said Andrew Antone, co-chair of Procore Cares, an employee-led group that seeks to increase civic sustainability and give back to the local community.

In addition to beach cleanups, Procore Cares organizes volunteer opportunities with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

“As part of the local community, Procore employees are encourage to give back and donate their time through Procore Cares,” said Marissa Nybakken, co-chair of Procore Cares. “We all love the beach and want to keep it pristine.”

Doug Madey is a communications officer at Procore.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
