Rotary Club willing to 'Shred-It' for a good cause

Niagara Gazette — The Lewiston/Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club is hosting an event that will allow residents to not only help themselves, but to also support their local community. The group will hold its first “Shred-It” fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 27 in the parking lot of Mount St. Mary’s Hospital at 5300 Military Road, Lewiston.

For a donation of $10 per Banker’s Box (15 inches by 12 inches by 10 inches) or $20 for three boxes, which translates to a 60 percent savings over retail establishments, residents can have bank statements, old insurance policies, outdated financial statements as well as documents pertaining to medical information, professionally shredded. Residents only need to drive up to the shredding location in the southeast corner of the hospital’s main parking lot and they will be able to watch as their documents are professionally and securely shredded.

With identity theft one of the fastest growing crimes in the U.S., the club encourages residents to take advantage of this opportunity to protect themselves. Plus, the money raised will continue to support Mount St. Mary’s Center for Women and to help fund the many additional services and organizations that the LNOTL Rotary Club assists.

In the local community, the Lewiston/Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club has assisted the libraries and historical societies in both Lewiston and Niagara-on-the-Lake, have provided defibrillators and other necessary equipment for the Lewiston Police Department, support for the coffee cart for patients, staff and family members at Mount St. Mary’s while also providing funds for a new transport crib for newborns at the hospital’s Center for Women. In addition, the club continues the fight against cancer by supporting the Terry Fox Run in Canada and the Relay for Life in the U.S. A large number of international events are also supported by the organization including young professional exchanges in India and The Netherlands and support for an annual medical mission by local healthcare providers to Chiapas, Mexico. The club meets every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Water Street Landing in Lewiston.

For additional information on the “Shred-It” event or becoming a member of the LNOTL Rotary Club, call Ron at 870-1307. Community members are always welcome to visit the Lewiston/Niagara-on-the-Lake Rotary Club.
