Allshred Services, headquartered in Maumee, Ohio, has announced that it will sponsor a community shred event in support of Lucas County Children Services’ 2012 “Give the Best Gift Ever” holiday gift drive. This is the third consecutive year that Allshred has sponsored an event to benefit the organization.
Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, from noon to 3 p.m., Allshred Services host a community shred event at the Burger King at 4870 Monroe St., Toledo. For the donation of a new unwrapped toy, the company will shred up to five boxes or bags of confidential documents per individual.
In addition, from Nov. 26 to Dec. 7, 2012, businesses and individuals can drop off up to five boxes or bags of confidential paper documents per person to Allshred’s Maumee location to be shredded for free in exchange for the donation of a new, unwrapped toy or gift card. Confidential materials and donations are accepted Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Allshred Services, 3940 Technology Dr., Maumee. All donations will be delivered to Lucas Country Children Services for its annual Holiday Toy Drive, which benefits local children who are victims of abuse or neglect and are being served by the county child welfare agency.
“Allshred has been involved in several community charities over the years and it is our honor to be a part of the Lucas County Children Services holiday gift drive for the third year,” says Tom Huth, Allshred Services senior vice president of operations. “We hope that the community uses this opportunity to safely dispose of their confidential materials at year’s end and, at the same time, help children who might not have much to be happy about at this time of year.”
