Final numbers from the Shred for Hunger campaign
Last November, BEST Shredding launched its annual “Shred for Hunger” campaign, where we donate $0.01 for each pound of paper we shred to local Food Banks in Western Canada.
We are pleased to announce that this year we raised $4,946 for local Food Banks! Here is the breakdown for each of the communities we serve:
Vancouver: 81,417 lbs
Victoria: 101,082 lbs
Edmonton: 52,603 lbs
Red Deer: 183,332 lbs
Calgary: 76,148 lbs
Currently, 863,000 Canadians use the Food Bank each month. Many Food Banks estimate that every $1 donated equals $5 worth of food that can be distributed to families in need.
We would like to thank everyone who participated in this amazing cause!
If you missed this opportunity, it’s not late! You can help by donating to your local Food Bank. Please visit their websites below to donate:
