Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach Sunset to benefit local food pantries through shredding event


In a continuing effort to help support those in our community most adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach Sunset is sponsoring a Community Shredding Event on Saturday, July 25, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Ponte Vedra United Methodist Church parking lot, located at 75 S. Roscoe Blvd in Ponte Vedra Beach. 

Funds raised will go to restock 22 local food pantries so those families in need will continue to receive critical support.  The minimum donation is $20 per bag or box. Cash is appreciated, but credit cards are accepted. 

This is a good opportunity for anyone in the area who needs to safely destroy and properly dispose of shreddable documents.  Procedures for the shredding event are simple and safe; drivers do not need to leave their vehicles.  Masked Rotary volunteers will remove bags and “banker” boxes of documents from the vehicles and take them to the onsite shredding truck, while other volunteers will collect the donations.

The PVB Sunset Rotary Club previously worked with United Way of St Johns County in May on a successful food drive and sees this event as another way to join forces to help their neighbors during this challenging time.

For more information or to arrange for a large donation, contact project coordinators Janeene Hart at (904) 412-5409 or Carol Maurer at (904) 226-2696.
