SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) May 15, 2019
PROSHRED® San Diego will be celebrating their annual “Shred Cancer” event on Saturday June 1, 2019 from 10AM to 2PM in partnership with The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR). Community members are invited to bring paper, file folders, hanging files, notepads, and envelopes to be securely shredded while raising funds for cancer research. The event will be held at PROSHRED® San Diego’s office location- 7377 Convoy Court, Suite C San Diego, CA 92111.
Individuals may bring boxes of their documents or multimedia to one of PROSHRED® San Diego’s on-site shredding trucks to safely and securely dispose of unwanted personal information. The event is free to attend and a suggested donation of $5 per box will go directly towards funding AICR’s cancer research and education programs.
“Generous support from millions of individual Americans—and not government or industry grants—have allowed AICR to fund emerging research and to continue our programs for educating the public about what practical steps we all can take every day to live in a world with less cancer,” said AICR Senior Vice President of Development Mary Beth Healy, “The funds raised by the PROSHRED® community makes a significant impact on the health of millions of Americans.”
Desiree Chiles, owner of PROSHRED® San Diego, commented, “We are happy to be able to contribute and help AICR any way we can. Their work in cancer research has made such a large impact over the last 30 years. We hope to raise awareness and funds for AICR with the collective efforts of our community during this event. We look forward to seeing everyone on June 1 at our office to Shred Cancer."
Started in 2014 on National Cancer Survivors’ Day, the PROSHRED® corporation has contributed over $176, 904.35 to cancer research. This year AICR and PROSHRED® San Diego have set a goal to raise $50,000 for research.
