Silverdale to rip it up

October 20, 2012 by  

The ‘Shred Day’, held in Silverdale each year, is an educational fundraiser that makes its annual stop in the area this weekend. Each year participants are asked to gather up their personal and confidential documents to support a good cause – education. Documents are shredded on site and right before guests, using All Shred’s impressive shredding truck.

This annual event is sponsored by P.E.O. Chapter CG, which is a sisterhood that raises funds to promote education scholarships for students in this area. With each pound of paper shredded, the P.E.O Chapter receives $1 to use for the scholarships. This is a rain-or-shine event and people are invited to watch the amazing shredding truck in action as their documents are destroyed.

P.E.O. is an international body that aims to promote the advancement of today’s women and provide education through scholarships, awards, loans, and grants. This group strives to help women reach their highest aspirations and support each other, as well as their community. The group also works on other fundraising programs throughout the year.

Poster printing, postcard printing, and flyer printing was most likely used to advertise and promote this outstanding fundraising initiative to resident in the area and surrounding communities. This unique fundraiser will be held on Saturday, October 27, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Silverdale United Methodist Church located at 9982 Silverdale Way NW in Silverdale, Washington.
