Free Shredding Event To Benefit Area Schools

The Courtyard Shops at Wellington invites the public to “turn their trash to cash” in its “Shred-4-Ed” program to raise much-needed funds to support area schools.

On Aug. 31, Sept. 28 and Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., area residents can safely dispose of personal documents, credit card offers, receipts, check stubs and any other material with sensitive data, granting both security, peace of mind and getting rid of unwanted clutter with a donation made for each container they bring to be shredded.

In appreciation, each supporter of community education will receive special offers, menus and other promotional items provided by Courtyard Shops merchants who are featuring sidewalk sales, samplings, demos, discounts, specials and more. The event is free.

The Courtyard Shops at Wellington, located at 13680 Wellington Trace at the corner of Wellington Trace and Greenview Shores Blvd., has more than 30 shops and restaurants including Publix, Kontiki, Van Dell Jewelers, Eyes of Wellington, Lindburgers Restaurant, Tijuana Flats and Sam Jon’s.
