Courtyard Shops at Wellington Launches Three-Month "Shred-4-Ed" Program to "Turn Trash Into Cash" to Benefit Local Schools

Free and Open-to-the-Public Shredding Sessions To Provide Personal Security For Residents and Businesses While Helping To Support Community Education

The public is invited to "turn their trash into cash" as the Courtyard Shops at Wellington launches its "Shred-4-Ed" program to support community education at area schools by donating funds for each container brought to free monthly shredding sessions, held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the center parking lot on the last Saturday of each month, specifically August 31st, September 28th and October 26th.

Area residents and businesses can use this program to discard unwanted clutter and gain peace of mind by safely disposing of personal documents, credit card offers, receipts, check stubs, any other material with sensitive data, all at no charge, with a donation to a local school of their choosing made by Courtyard Shops at Wellington for each container they bring to be shredded. In appreciation, each supporter of community education will receive special offers, and other promotional items provided by Courtyard Shops at Wellington's diverse collection of more than 30 stores and restaurants that are featuring special sales, samplings, demos, discounts, and more during the program session days.

Conveniently located at 13860 Wellington Trace in Wellington at the corner of Wellington Trace and Greenview Shores Blvd, the Courtyard Shops at Wellington is a retail destination with more than 30 shops and restaurants including Publix, Kontiki, Van Dell Jewelers, Eyes of Wellington, Lindburgers Restaurant, Tijuana Flats and Sam Jon's.

"We are very excited to be able to provide an opportunity to raise much-needed funds for local schools," said Jeff Purisch, Property Manager of Courtyard Shops at Wellington, a Federal Realty Investment Trust property. "With the school year now just getting underway and knowing the vital need to support community education in the face of budget cuts, it is inspiring to have the support from both Courtyard merchants as well as business, education and community organizations embracing this program and helping to get the word out."
