Cheshire Paper Shred Day Raises $1,860!
On Saturday morning, April 18th, under sunny skies, we held our 4th annual Paper Shred Event. Throughout the morning a steady flow of our friends, neighbors and supporters drove in to shred their papers, and donate funds to support our residents. At a donation of $5 per box, a total of $1,860 was raised, making this year's fund raiser our best Shred Day to date.
Once again Andre from Security Shredding supervised our operation, and we loaded each box and bag of paper into bins that emptied into Security's computerized shred truck, and...presto! Done. Many participants took the drive in/drive out option, and some chose to stay and watch as their documents went through the system, shredded down to slivers.
Each dollar raised will be dedicated to our programs and services that enable residents to gain independence. As always, we were very pleased to offer this event to the community, and most appreciative of the tremendous support we received.
