Shredding Party a Great Success for Pacelli Catholic Schools & Community

On May 10th, Schulfer & Associates, LLC Financial Professionals, a local retirement planning and investment firm, hosted their 8th Annual Shredding Party benefitting Pacelli Catholic Schools.

Over $3,000 was raised at the shredding event through donations for the shredding services provided by Express Recycling Solutions, Inc., along with sales of shredded food, while attendees were entertained by the Pacelli Catholic High School pep band.

Each year, Pacelli chooses a project which will be funded with the proceeds from the Shredding Party.  A goal is set, word is spread, and fingers are crossed for a great turn out.  This year, the goal was to purchase Library World, an on-line data base system for the schools’ libraries.  This will allow books to be tracked electronically and have a central database system for all Pacelli’s libraries, allowing students to check out books across multiple buildings.

"We are thrilled to have raised the funds for Library World,” said LouAnn Schulfer of Schulfer & Associates, LLC Financial Professionals.  “Teachers, students and parents alike have expressed their excitement for this new system with the efficiency it will create and the enhancement for students to use the resources of the libraries.  This is the eighth project that has been funded from our annual Shredding Parties.  We look forward to 2019!"

The spring-cleaning shredding party allows individuals and businesses to bring sensitive record-keeping documents to be collected, shredded, and recycled. This year over 11,435 pounds of documents were brought in.

Collectively, the annual shredding events have raised over $20,600 for Pacelli Catholic Schools, and over 80,000 pounds of documents have been shredded and recycled.

“It has become a remarkable event and we’re thankful to all who participated and donated,” said Schulfer.  “We’ve already been asked if we’ll do it again next year, and yes, we are thrilled to give back to Pacelli Schools, who’ve given so much to our community for over 145 years .”
