Shredding Company Raises Thousands for the American Institute for Cancer Research

We love this community, and we’re so grateful for the opportunity to give back

PROSHRED San Diego recently completed a highly successful round of charity fundraising for the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). In June of 2016, the leading San Diego shredding company raised over $3,500 for the organization, which champions cancer research through the funding of scientific research.

“The AICR is a charity we all feel really passionate about here,” says Desiree Chiles, President and Owner of PROSHRED San Diego. “The Proshred system nationwide chose cancer and the AICR as their charitable cause to honor one of our own, franchisee David Wright. David owned and operated the very successful and respected Charlotte, NC franchise. In 2012, David was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and was given 6 months to live. David passed away May 31, 2014, just days before the first annual “Shred Cancer” event. In the last three years alone, PROSHRED San Diego has helped raise over $15,000 for the AICR and our system nationwide has raised close to $100,000.”

In addition to specific fundraising events and promotions meant to spur one-time giving, PROSHRED regularly invests time and resources towards year-round fundraising goals. For example, this past year PROSHRED partnered with Pay It Forward Processing, a credit card processor that gives a portion every swipe to charitable causes. Through the partnership, the AICR was named an “approved charity” by Pay It Forward, meaning fundraising happens all year long every time PROSHRED customers pay by credit card. To date, Pay it Forward’s “Every Swipe Benefits Charity” has helped generate over $12,000 for the AICR.

PROSHRED San Diego services business and individual customers all over the greater San Diego area. Offering on-site, drop-off, and one-time purge shredding services, PROSHRED’s flat-fee model is built on the tenets of affordability and security.

For over 30 years, the American Institute for Cancer Research has been working towards a cure. Donations help fund ongoing cancer research in labs across the country, improve the lives of cancer survivors, and support education efforts regarding cancer risks. “It’s hard not to be inspired by the work the AICR does on a daily basis,” says Chiles. “It’s incredibly important to us to give back, and we believe these gifts do that in a big way.”

In addition to regular donations to national charities like AICR, the PROSHRED San Diego franchise actively supports a number of local causes as well. “We love this community, and we’re so grateful for the opportunity to give back,” concludes Chiles.

PROSHRED SECURITY pioneered onsite shredding services over 30 years ago. The PROSHRED San Diego franchise is one of over two-dozen independently operated branches throughout the U.S. and is proud to be NAID AAA certified and ISO:9001 certified.
