Ladner Rotarians hosting April 1 fundraiser

Ladner Rotarians hosting shed-a-thon next Saturday
The Delta Gymnastics SeniorsÂ’ program will be one of the groups that will benefit from the Ladner Rotary Club shred-a-thon on April 1.

To support the growth and value of the Delta Gymnastics seniors’ program for the entire community and the service above self of the 113 members in the Ladner Rotary sponsored Interact Club at Delta Secondary, the Rotary Club of Ladner is holding its spring shred-a-thon.

The fundraiser is next Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m. to noon at 5300 Ladner Trunk Road, behind Eastlink (Delta Cable).

Any individual, company or organization can bring their old tax returns, credit card bills, business records, bank statements, and personal information documents so a shredding company can safely and securely shred the paper on the spot. A donation of $15 per banker’s box of paper will go entirely to support the programs for seniors’ wellness and youth achievement in community service.

Delta and area residents and business owners or managers can show up in their vehicles, supervise volunteers who will unload the shredding material from their vehicles and dump it into a shredding bin, which will then be loaded by a Shred-Wise company operator into the shredding truck on site.

“I have been involved in learning for seniors in our community for a number of years,” said Ladner Rotary Club president Guillermo Bustos. “With that perspective of how important that opportunity is for our community, I appreciate as well how important physical activity for seniors is and the great value to all of us of the Delta Gymnastics seniors’ program we are supporting. Our club is happy to support further growth of this program.

“At the other end of the age range, there are the productive Delta Secondary students in the Interact Club which we sponsor. It’s amazing what they continue to do for our community and our world.”
