A shredding event at Re/Max Progroup in Tsawwassen last Saturday to support children with special needs was an overwhelming success.
For the first time in the three years the event has been held the shredding truck was full with 3,000 pounds of paper by noon. Shredwise’s Jessie Parker said the load will be reused to make paper.
ReMax Progroup Realty and South Delta Financial Group-Raymond James hosted the charity shredding event that raised $ 3,215 to benefit Reach Child and Youth Development Society.
"We were all blown away by the community turnout on this beautiful day,” said Reach development manager Kristin Bibbs. “We cannot express enough thanks to everyone who came out and our apologies to those we had to turn away. Please keep your eye out for the next shredding event."
Volunteers from Reach, Raymond James and Re/Max Progroup Tsawwassen were out in force to help community members who came out to shred their documents by donation. South Delta McDonald’s donated coffee for the fundraiser and Shredwise supports the event without making a profit.
