Chuck Pletcher is an engineer at Assembly, a Mission based tech startup. He’s also the founder of Mission Hacks, a new event that he hopes will rally the city’s tech community to help neighborhood nonprofits.

Pletcher says his time living in the neighborhood spurred him to action.

“Living in the heart of the Mission, you can’t help but help numerous encounters with lots of people whom you want to help, and lots of people who also want to help.”

The first Mission Hacks meetup is today at 10 AM at Assembly’s office at 3030 16th Street.
