Shred Nations and All American Records Management, in partnership with The Action Center, hosted an end of the year shredding day and food drive for the city of Lakewood, Colorado.
Collectively, citizens of Lakewood helped raise enough food to feed 65 families this holiday season. In addition, $700 was raised in monetary donations for The Action Center.
Community members lined up at Shred Nation’s headquarters to have old banking statements, tax returns, medical records and other documents be shredded. In exchange for the free shredding service, attendees donated non-perishable goods or monetary donations to be given to The Action Center for the Thanksgiving holiday.
More than 6,200 pounds of paper shredded later, Shred Nations and All American Records Management raised enough food to feed 65 families this holiday season.
In addition to helping feed families during the holidays, participants helped protect their identities by shredding their sensitive documents.
