We also determined that Recology, GreenLeafSF, Old Skool Cafe, Radio Africa Kitchen, EDot, Bayview Pasta, and Lowe's have all made significant social impact around the San Francisco Bay area recently either through donations, fair trade, or by simply helping out the local community. As requested, we summarized all our findings and filled-in rows 28-45 of columns B-N within the provided spreadsheet.

LIMITATIONS AND DELIMITATIONS

1.) NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES
Due to the scarcity of information publicized about the number of employees of most of the companies assigned to this request, we have instead relied on estimates from credible company databases such as LinkedIn and Crunchbase, and press releases which mention company size at a given date.

2.) LOWE'S
Efforts to find information specifically for just the Bayview store of Lowe's prove that such information is largely unavailable due to the fact that the company does not segment public data to a store level. However, we were able to determine that there were no entry-level job openings within the area. In addition to this, the company's 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Report states that they have recently worked on projects specifically within San Francisco area which had a strong social impact on the local community.

CONCLUSION

Out of all the companies assigned to this request, Old Skool Cafe, GreenLeaf, VegiWorks, Recology, Craftsman & Wolves, and McCall's Catering currently have entry-level job openings while Recology, GreenLeafSF, Old Skool Cafe, Radio Africa Kitchen, EDot, Bayview Pasta, and Lowe's have worked on projects that have benefited the local community. Per your request, we summarized all our findings and filled-in rows 28-45 of columns B-N within the provided spreadsheet.
