Document Shred Day in Katy Texas

Shred Day will take place in Katy Texas on Saturday October 27, 2012 from 9 AM until noon. Bring boxes or any container of old unwanted documents and these will be shredded for the donation of $10.00 per box. The event will take place at the First Victoria bank which is located at 5005 S. Mason Road Katy Texas. The bank is on the corner of Fry Road and Mason on the southeast corner.

The idea is bring boxes and bags full of unwanted papers, documents, bills, junk mail, magazines and whatever to First Victoria Bank and they will shred all of these documents for you.

What I believe is the really cool part is that all proceeds from this shredding operation will be given to the Impact a Hero “charitable organization. This group helps severely wounded service women and men. In their own words taken from their web site: “ Impact A Hero is a non-partisan 501(c) (3) organization, created to provide a simple mechanism for individuals and corporations to help provide emotional and financial support for our severely wounded /disabled War on Terror veterans and their families. All Donations are tax-deductible.”

I personally believe our government does not provide and never has provided the assistance it should to these wounded heroes. This is a total positive situation for all participants. We still have numerous old files in both my garage and study that need to be shredded. Unfortunately I did not see this event being promoted until just recently and I am showing homes tomorrow.

If you would like more information about this fine charity or make a donation go to their web site byclicking here.

This same event was held back in late August of this year and I wrote blog about it back then. I always believe in backing Veterans especially those who have been injured.

Bob ....  Wish our area would follow Katy Texas and have a Fall Shred Day.  I have a file cabinet that is ready to be shredded and recycled.  Hope you win the battle with your cold and have a good weekend my friend.

I hope they can get the word out to the senior citizens. They collect things that they are afraid to put in the trash and this would be a great opportunity for them to get rid of some trash while supporting a good cause!

Though this is nice important service to offer many without a shredder, the number fewer by the day, I am still waiting for the first almost paperless real estate deal. Unfortunately, probably way beyond my time in the business. cheers cvc
