Purple Heart shred-a-thon begins fundraising for 2021 banquet


The Wake Forest Purple Heart Foundation conducted a paper shredding extravaganza Saturday, Nov. 21 at the parking lot along Wingste Street.

The shredding event provided the community the opportunity to have documents shredded at the extremely reasonable price of $10.00 per cardboard box or $25.00 for three boxes. Receipts from the Shred-a-thon are to provide funding for the upcoming 2021 Purple Heart Banquet.

Due to the limitations forced upon the community by the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Purple Heart Banquet had to be cancelled and limited the Foundation’s fund raising effort.

Donations are being accepted in support of the 2021 campaign.

Funds can be sent to the Wake Forest Post Office Box 168 or directly to the address listed on the Foundation WEBSITE: wakeforestpurpleheartfoundation.org.

Fundraising efforts to support the August 2021Purple Heart Banquet will begin Jan. 2, 2021.
