The St. James Academy student council hosted a Shred-A-Thon on April 13 where people could bring their confidential documents as well as “E”waste, such as computers, televisions, cell phones, and have them safely, securely destroyed.

The students decided to split the net donations with a worthy cause as a way of giving back to the community.  They chose the Warrior Foundation because they believe it is important to honor the country’s military service members who fought abroad so that America remains safe and free.  They especially like the fact that every penny that goes to the Warrior Foundation helps those stationed right here in San Diego.

The event was such a huge success, the students were able to present a check in the amount of $1,635.90 to the Warrior Foundation.  The donations actually came from all over the county and the response was so favorable, they are hoping to make this a yearly event. Maggie Brady, co-chairman of Ways and Means, came up with the idea for the event and played a key role in promoting it.
