On Saturday, August 22, @RotarySteveston is hosting a Shred Event at @RAMcMath! That box of confidential documents that's been sitting in your garage for 15 years? You can turn it into confetti for just $10, with all proceeds supporting local charitable programs, including RCRG! pic.twitter.com/mV5zUls7jo— Rmd Cares, Rmd Gives (@rcaresrgives) August 6, 2020
With the COVID-19 pandemic limiting gatherings and consequently many fundraisers, local charities are struggling to raise money needed for a variety of services, for example, RCRG’s largest fundraisers that supports the Christmas fund program, Windows of Hope, Not So Silent Night and the RCMP toy drive, won’t take place in their usual form this year.
The shredding fundraising runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McMath secondary, 4251 Garry St., and a minimum donation per banker’s box is $10. Credit and debit are accepted.
