At least 50 of the 600 low income families throughout Delta, registered with Deltassist, will enjoy a happier Christmas thanks to $4,900 in net proceeds from a paper Shred-A-Thon which Ladner Rotary held on November 7, 2020. The funds will be used by Deltassist to purchase food gift cards, replacing the usual Christmas Hampers of food collected through local schools and other organizations because of pandemic restrictions. Raising the cash, rather than the food, has proven to be a large, extraordinary challenge, but a big "THANK YOU" to all the Delta residents who drove up in 135 vehicles to clear their homes and offices of 4.5 tons of paper and contribute to the shredding fundraiser, bringing some Christmas joy to those who have little for themselves.
