Kim Schroeder, Vice President of Operations and Boy Scouts Ted Krueger and Nick Andera helped unload the documents and deposit into the recycling bins. Over 3,500 pounds of paper documents were shredded.

Participants were encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation for the local Salvation Army and they came through with 326 pounds of food being donated along with $50.
