Peterborough’s Cody & James Chartered Professional Accountants has turned shredded paper into cash, raising $3,500 for Brock Mission’s homeless shelters.
During September, Cody & James CPAs encouraged the community to bring in boxes of material to be shredded in exchange for a suggested donation of $15 per box to Brock Mission.
According to senior partners Suzanne Cody and Gwyneth James, the firm accepted more than 1,400 gallons of shredding material.
The resulting funds raised are move than double the amount raised in 2019, the last time the event was held due to the pandemic.
“The fundraiser was developed by Cody & James CPAs as a way to give back to our community in way that focuses on the current need within our community,” reads a media release.
“The team chose the Brock Mission as this year’s recipient in recognition of the crucial work it provides for the Peterborough homeless population.”
