American Red Cross Shreds for Disaster


The Daily Item

— LEWISBURG — On a sunny Saturday at three locations in central and northern Pennsylvania, the real estate company of Prudential Hodrick along with the American Red Cross held an unusual event to raise money and awareness for the cause. A mobile shredding vehicle from Keystone Shredding came to the Prudential office in Lewisburg and the two American Red Cross chapters in Williamsport and Danville where they set up a station to offer free shredding to the public and some life-saving information from volunteers.

The brainchild of Kevin Hodrick, a board member at the NCPA Chapter of the American Red Cross, in Williamsport, the event raised almost $3,000 for the organization and gave the opportunity to many townsfolk to rid themselves of unwanted bank statements and tax returns as well as other important, but no longer needed documents in a safe and permanent manner. Volunteers were on site to offer information about upcoming blood drives, Hands Only CPR and to answer questions about giving service hours to the Red Cross.

Hodrick was well pleased with the event and promises to repeat it in the future. “I think our timing was good, right after April 15 so folks had a ton of paper debris to unload, my staff and I were happy to be involved,” he said.
