A Successful Shred Event: Thank You!
Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend for our shredding event. We lucked out with a beautiful day, sunny but not too hot.
Our fantastic operations team was there early, picking up breakfast and setting everything up. This let me sleep in a little (ok, maybe I overslept by 5 or 10 minutes) and only show up when it started. And people began rolling into the parking lot right at 9:00 am. Some had just a few folders' worth of items to shred, while others have pretty much filled the back of their car.
Along the way we collected a bunch of food and other much needed supplies for the Braintree food pantry. We weren't sure how much to expect, but were pleasantly surprised by the generosity of everyone who came. So we ended up making a sizable donation, which they very kindly came to pick up, since their van was big enough to fit everything in one trip.
We all have plenty of clutter so it always feels great to finally be rid of something you don't need. Especially when that something has sensitive personal and financial info that would be a treasure trove for identity thieves. When all was done it turned out to be a great day - working on my non-existent tan; catching up with colleagues, clients, and friends; cleaning out some clutter; and donating to a great cause. So thanks again to all who stopped by, and stay tuned for our next one!
