TRAV Show Benefit - Document Shredding

A group of riders from Riverwood are hosting a document shredding event in an effort to raise money to travel to Lexington, Virginia where they participate in the TRAV (Therapeutic Riding Association of Virginia) show! This horse show offers our independent riders the opportunity to compete with other riders from all around the Southeast United States. All funds raised through the shredding event will help pay for horse transportation, barn fees and class entry fees. Shamrock Shredding will provide secure shredding of paper and computer hard drives. They can also provide a Certificate of Secure Shredding, if needed. Items are shredded immediately, on site during the event. Donations for our riders are also welcome. Both events will be held at Parkway Presbyterian Church, 1000 Yorkshire Road (Corner of Silas Creek Parkway). For further information, please call Riverwood's office, 336.922.6426.
