The Bermuda Run Garden Club would like to help you get rid of your old, outdated paperwork during their biannual paper-shredding event on Saturday, April 21st, rain or shine.
The event will take place from 9 am – noon in the Bermuda Run Town Hall parking off US 158 at 120 Kinderton Boulevard.
Cor365’s mobile truck, “The Beast,” will shred your papers onsite to protect your privacy. Shredding outdated personal documents, bank statements, insurance policies, etc. helps to eliminate identity fraud as well as protects our environment by recycling paper. The shredded material is recycled into paper towels and napkins.
The cost is $5 cash per brown paper grocery bag or equivalent sized box. This event is for paper shredding only. Please do not include cardboard, carbon paper, plastics, transparencies, or electronic materials, like CDs or microfiche.
Through its fundraisers, the Bermuda Run Garden Club has donated thousands of dollars to various Davie County community programs.
The club has supported A Storehouse for Jesus, by donating food, sponsoring meals at Thanksgiving, conducting a blanket drive, and creating centerpieces for the annual Christmas dinner.
Other projects have included donating books on horticulture and design to the Davie County Public Library, creating small bouquets of flowers once each quarter for the Meals on Wheels food trays, providing centerpieces for a dinner that benefits Hospice, and supporting Pearls of Empowerment. Many club members serve as lunch buddies for Pinebrook Elementary School.
In November, the club hosts a Thanksgiving dinner for the exceptional children and teachers from the Davie County schools.
In addition, the club gives money to the Davie Community Foundation to support the Children’s Reading Program Summer Camp, which provides students with the extra reading assistance they need to move on to the next grade level.
The club also combined proceeds from the shredding events and the annual geranium sale to establish a $5000 endowed fund with the Davie County Community Foundation. The Bermuda Run Garden Club Community Fund provides grants to projects that impact youth, literacy, and healthy living in Davie County.
