Dear editor:

Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Palliative Care Service would like to extend a huge “thank you” to the awesome group of people who contributed to a very successful Community Shred-it event on Saturday, Aug. 17.

Thanks to the support of the Meridian Credit Union, the dedicated efforts from Vineridge Academy, Shred-it employees, and our agency's own volunteers.

The groups' spirits could not be dampened despite working in heavy downpours at times.

And a very special thanks to the generosity of the local residents, who helped us raise more than $4,700.

The proceeds will go to help us continue providing free services and equipment to the seriously ill and their caregivers in our community.
