CAPE CORAL, Fla. — The Pilot Club of Fort Myers along with the Cape Coral Police Department is holding a shredding event on Saturday, May 22, 2021.

The event will be held in the front parking lot of the Cape Coral Police Department (1100 Cultural Park Blvd) between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

Oasis JROTC cadets will be on hand to help drivers unload their boxes to be shredded; the boxes can be returned if desired. All shredding will occur on-site.

Donations of $5.00 per box to be shredded are suggested. Please remove binder clips or paper clips attached to the paper being shredded.

Commercial boxes will not be accepted.

Project Lifesaver is a Cape Coral Police Department program that uses wristbands that emit a signal to help find individuals who tend to wander. The proceeds of this event will be used to help update and replace damaged or worn equipment. This technology can minimize the length of time it takes to locate a missing person/wanderer.

The Pilot Club of Fort Myers focuses its efforts on helping organizations seeking to improve the quality of life for individuals with brain-related disorders through volunteer activities, education, and financial support. The club name came from a riverboat pilot who could steer safely through troubled waters. The club’s motto is “do more, care more, and be more.”

Due to COVID-19, we ask that all participants socially distance themselves and wear a mask.

For information about the Pilot Club, contact the president, Fran D’Alessandro, at 239-332-1140, or email at jodyvanc@gmail.com.
