Community invited to help paint Rancho Market in North Richmond

The Rancho Market store in North Richmond will soon receive a paint job thanks to a community effort.

Supervisor John Gioia’s office is partnering with the city of Richmond as well as sponsors The Home Depot and Kelly-Moore Paints to “put a new paint job on this important community grocer” at Market Avenue and 5th Street, according to Robert Rogers, district coordinator for Supervisor Gioia.

Community volunteers are invited to join the paint party, set for 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28.

“It’s important for us to come together and enhance the exterior of this building, the only non-alcohol selling community grocer in unincorporated North Richmond,” Rogers said. “And since it sits on the neighborhood’s main corridor, along the route children use to walk to Verde Elementary School, this beautification project will be a highly visible symbol of community pride and stewardship.”

Those who want to join and support the effort are asked to reach out to Rogers at Supervisor Gioia’s Office at (510) 231-8688.
