Children can read a story over the course of a trail of reading stations scheduled to open by this summer in Ladner. Some students at Delta Secondary School and their families, who need a hand up, will continue to receive food over weekends from a food pantry program. These two services to the community are being provided by Rotary Club of Ladner thanks to proceeds from a paper shredding fundraiser it organized on April 10th.
The South Delta residents and business people who showed up in 130 vehicles over four hours with boxes and bags of confidential and other documents to the shredding site behind the Delta TV/Eastlink building on Ladner Trunk Road, made the event a success with about $3,000 raised for the two community service projects.
Also making the event a success were 15 Ladner Rotary volunteers and four Rotary-sponsored Interact club members from Delta Secondary School.
Ideal Door and Envision Financial branch in Ladner contributed to the event’s success by sponsoring two Shred-Wise trucks which hauled away the equivalent of 300 boxes of shredded documents by mid-afternoon.
Four members of the Rotary sponsored Interact Club at Delta Secondary School helped direct traffic, the day
was sunny, but very windy, some of Ladner Rotary's features were on display, and our two event sponsors

Rotary Club of Ladner President Peter Roaf says, “Once again we are delighted, but not surprised, by the generosity of our local residents and businesses which helped us raise these funds so they could join us in giving back to the community through the children’s story trail and high school food support program. Last Fall all the proceeds from our shredding event allowed us to give far more than we could normally afford to support some of the 650 Delta families in need with Christmas food, organized by Deltassist. So, once again, thank you, South Delta community and to our team of event volunteers, including members of our sponsored Interact club at Delta Secondary School. A special thank you to Ideal Door and Envision for their sponsorship”
