Shred360 Collecting for Harvest Hope Food Bank Again!

Encouraged by the tremendous successes of this year’s earlier donation drives for Harvest Hope, Shred360 is proud to announce another shred day/donation drive in September to benefit the hungry throughout the Midlands.

On Thursday, September 12th, Shred360 will be providing a free Shred Day in the Walmart parking lot, 10060 Two Notch Rd., in Columbia. At that time, collections of non-perishable items like canned and boxed foods will be collected (in addition to cash donations) for Harvest Hope. The Shred Day/Donation collection ranges from 9 am – 12 pm and picks back up again at 2 pm – 4pm. You can get more details, share the event on social media and find directions by clicking the link below.

For those of you who don’t know, Harvest Hope Food Bank is a multi-location not-for-profit organization with the mission to provide for the needs of hungry people by gathering and sharing quality food with dignity, compassion and education.

Shred Day with Seras Records

Earlier this year we told you that our former Operations Manager, Harry Hoppmann, left Shred360 to start a company of his own, Seras Records. The team from Shred360 and Harry will be together once again for a shred day and a chance to introduce Seras’ scanning and records-keeping solutions.

Come see the band back together in Rock Hill, Tuesday, September 3!

Shred 360 Back-To-School Supplies Drive A Big Success!

The Shred360 team decided early this year to take on and partner with organizations and challenges that really needed help and that the team could really identify with. One of those challenges was the need for school supplies by less fortunate children and under-funded schools in the Midlands. As a result, Shred360 partnered with The UPS Store of Irmo and Radius Church of Lexington in August to collect school supplies. We’re happy to report that the efforts paid off – we collected over ten (10) boxes of notebooks, pencils, pens and backpacks for area schools and children!

Thank you! we could not have done this without the help of our great customers and friends – you deserve the credit for this wonderful kindness.
