After a year, Jake was able to move both brothers to Mount Shasta to help run the company. Since then, All Trade Services has grown to employ 23 motivated people who, together, have helped the company reach new levels of success. 

All Trade Services is now in the fortunate position to give back to its community,that has supported the company since inception. 

The goal of this scholarship is to provide funding for a career path in the trades (HVAC, Electrical, or Plumbing) to one Siskiyou County graduating senior each year.  Last year, All Trade Services awarded its first scholarship to a recipient pursuing Electrical trade school and the company looks forward to awarding its second annual scholarship to this year’s qualifying candidate.

Step 1:  Get your FSA ID
