SHREDDING EVENT TO BE
HELD SATURDAY, MAY 22
Easy Access Provided for
Cape Coral Police Department
This is a good time to clear out all that paper that’s no longer needed and is cluttering up files! Here’s the chance for everyone to dispose of unneeded paper! The Pilot Club of Fort Myers and the Cape Coral Police Department are holding a shredding event on Saturday, May 22, 2021. The event will be held at the Cape Coral Police Department, 1100 Cultural Park Blvd., between 9:00 a.m. and noon.
Due to COVID-19, all those bringing paper to shred are asked to socially distance and wear a mask. Individuals 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.
Donations of $5.00 per box to be shredded are suggested. There should be no binder clips or paper clips attached to paper being shredded. All proceeds of the event will be donated to the Cape Coral Project Lifesaver Programs and the Pilot Club.
Project Lifesaver is a Cape Coral Police Department program 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.
Unfortunately, the need for this program will not dwindle with time, but increase due to the growing number of people diagnosed with Autism, ASD, Alzheimer’s disease, and Dementia. The need for additional and replacement/updated equipment will continue to increase. The equipment costs can be too expensive for some families to purchase. The help provided by the Pilot Club through financial support goes a long way.
The focus of the Pilot Club of Fort Myers is 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
