Thank you to everyone who came out to help with the 2016 Shred-A-Thon

Thank you to everyone who came out to help with the Shred-A-Thon on Saturday.  It was hot, non-stop work but the results are amazing.  This is our biggest event yet!  Thank you to everyone who spread the word with emails to the schools and community shared the event on various Facebook groups, sent emails, etc.
 

Drum roll…..  Here are the results of your Saturday Morning workout!

  • Food Collected – 41 Boxes of food. This equates to $2041.00 worth of food.  A great start to the Thanksgiving food distribution.
  • Money to buy Turkeys – $621 collected – Enough to buy about 53 turkeys.
  • There were 12,500 pounds of paper collected and shredded, which equates to $811.00  going to the Tempe Hilibation Center
  • We added several pounds of cardboard to the recycle BIN at Monte Vista.


The Tempe Centers for Habilitation owns ASSD Document Destruction. Both are 5011(c) (3) companies. ASDD Document Destruction did not charge for the use of their trucks or manpower.

We had over 200 vehicles through to drop off shredding. Greg and I passed out magnets for our next Shred-A-Thon – April 29, 2017.  Same time, same location!

While our published time was from 9 AM – 11 AM, we started shredding by 8:30 AM as early birds arrived and served a few stragglers after 11 AM.

A special thank-you to our sponsors:  Mark King Home Inspections, Arizona Mortgage Specialists – Mike Langs, College Hunks Moving – Mike Neumayer, Old Republic Title Agency – Kay Handeland and Rebecca Kossmann from Liberty Mutual Insurance.

 

Also thank-you to everyone who brought any others to help. This is the best turnout of volunteers ever!

Thank you!!

Shirley & Greg
