Acsenda School of Management was pleased to collaborate with the Rotary Club Shredathon in downtown Vancouver on November 6th with the participation of eight students and President Neil Mort helping to direct traffic and greet people.
People from all over Vancouver brought papers to be responsibly shredded by a special mobile truck, with proceeds from the event going towards supporting club projects helping youth on the downtown eastside and projects providing water systems for rural schools in Kenya.
The Rotary Club of Vancouver is a organization of business and experienced personnel who help to provide humanitarian service, promoting kindness and goodwill in order to create peace in the world. The Rotary Club gives an opportunity to do something on significant problems that have an impact on our communities, our country and the world and people can cooperate just from the comfortability of their own home.
People can help to make a difference, getting involved in making local communities better, building connections with leaders and other citizens. It was a great opportunity for students to learn more from business professionals, political leaders, and entrepreneurs, and help people and volunteers to stay informed on topics relevant to their communities.
Some examples of the causes for what the Rotary Club dedicates its time to are: fighting diseases, providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene, saving mothers and children, supporting education, growing local economies, protecting the environment and promoting world peace.
