The Westside Youth Centre would like to thank West Kelowna Community Policing, Okanagan Paper Shredding and RBC, for hosting a community shredding event to raise funds for the Westside Youth Centre.
Over 240 boxes of paper were shredded and over $2700.00 was raised, while having a great time getting to know all the wonderful volunteers.
Paul the owner of Okanagan Paper Shredding, graciously did all the shredding for free and spent his Sat morning hauling bins of paper to the shredder.
This is a great event that not only support the Westside Youth Centre and the young people who accesses the programs and services but also ensures the general publics' private documents and information are disposed of in a safe way.

It is great to know that we have such amazing people in our community supporting
