The Pilot Club of Fort Myers and the Cape Coral Police Department are holding a shredding event on Saturday, January 23, 2021. The event will be held in the front parking lot of the Cape Coral Police Department, 1100 Cultural Park Blvd, between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Due to COVID-19, we ask that all participants socially distance themselves and wear a mask.
Oasis JROTC cadets will be on hand to help drivers unload their boxes to be shredded; the boxes can be returned if desired. Shredding will occur on site.
All proceeds of the event will be donated to the Cape Coral Project Lifesaver Programs and the Pilot Club. A donation of $5.00 per box to be shredded is suggested. Please remove binder clips or paper clips attached to paper being shredded. Commercial boxes will not be accepted.
Project Lifesaver is a program of Cape Coral Police Department which uses wristbands that emit a signal to help find individuals who tend to wander. The proceeds of this event will be used to help update and replace damaged or worn equipment. This technology can minimize the length of time it takes to locate a missing person / wanderer.
As increases in the number of people diagnosed with Autism, ASD, Alzheimer’s disease, and Dementia occur, the need for additional equipment is necessary. Equipment costs for families can be too costly. The financial help provided by the Pilot Club by holding the Shred-A-Ton event goes a long way.
The Pilot Club of Fort Myers focuses their efforts on helping organizations seeking to improve the quality of life for individuals with brain-related disorders through volunteer activities, education, and financial support. The club name came from a riverboat pilot who could steer safely through troubled waters. The club’s motto is “do more, care more, and be more.” For information about the Pilot Club, contact the president, Fran D’Alessandro, 239-332-1140, or email at email@example.com.
