350 cars filled up 39 barrels at recent shredding event
The Golden Age Foundation’s (GAF) document shredding event on July 13 was a success.
The drop-and-go method worked extremely well. Residents waited in their cars as GAF volunteers retrieved the items to be shredded, which made the whole process easy and simple. The GAF is considering continuing this method since it is so efficient.
Truck driver Manny Lopez was so helpful during the event. There were over 350 cars/carts that were serviced during the two-hour event.
The the next shredding event will be in November. LWers are asked to remember to not bring batteries to the event. Batteries can be dropped off any time in the buckets behind Clubhouse 5.
People are also asked to put the documents to be shredded in paper or plastic bags; no boxes will be accepted. Something that showed up this time was a bag of x-rays. Items such as these contaminate the paper and cannot be shredded.
The GAF thanks those who donated at the event. The donations collected will be used to fund GAF programs.
GAF is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit foundation. To receive more information about the GAF, visit the website at www.GoldenAgeFdn. org.
