Barrie, ON Canada (PressExposure) September 19, 2012 -- Shred North, the local paper shredding company in Barrie, Ontario will be holding a 'Charity Shred Day' on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 between 10:00am and 1:00pm at Gilda's Club Simcoe Muskoka at 10 Quarry Ridge in Barrie. Residents are encouraged to bring out their confidential documents to be shredded by the Shred North mobile shred truck for only a donation of $10 per box or shopping bag with all proceeds going toward Gilda's Club.
Shred North, a nominee for the upcoming Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce EDO New Business Award for 2012, is holding the shred day in order to both raise funds for Gilda's Club as well as to assist in combating identity theft in the community.
In addition to paper shredding, there will be a community booth run by the OPP to help educate citizens in regard to the importance of identity theft prevention.
"This is a great opportunity to accomplish two goals", states Daryl Woytowicz, local resident and General Manager of Shred North. "Helping educate citizens in regard to protecting themselves against identity theft as well as raising funds for a great community charity like Gilda's Club is a great thing to be a part of".
Gilda's Club is an international network of affiliate clubhouses - non-residential, homelike meeting places where men, women and children living with cancer, as well as their friends and families, meet to learn how to live with cancer.
The hope is that we can provide a secure outlet for residents to have their information destroyed and increase awareness of a community support group such as Gilda's will benefit the community as a whole.
