Fashion and fundraising at Semiahmoo Centre

Secure document shredding will be offered by donation to Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank.

Semiahmoo Shopping Centre is celebrating Earth Day all week long.

Through Sunday, creative couture – fashions made from recycled materials by second-year Kwantlen Polytechnic University design and technology students – will be on display.

On Saturday, with help from Surrey RCMP, 1-800-Shredding will be on-site offering safe and secure shredding by donation to Sources White Rock/South Surrey Food Bank.

The latter is just one example of how the shopping centre helps the community by supporting local organizations’ fundraising efforts. Annually, Get Shredded events raise approximately $6,500 and 1,000 pounds of food for the food bank.

Every year, more than $125,000 is raised on-site for various charities, marketing director Jeri Cox notes in a news release.

Cox names the Rotary Club of White Rock’s annual book sale, Surrey firefighters’ annual Ignite a Dream and the Canadian Cancer Society’s gift-wrap booth as among other initiatives that have pushed the fundraising total past the million-dollar mark.

The impact these donations make is significant and show the commitment from the volunteers, residents, organizations and businesses to make White Rock/South Surrey a better place to live and work,” the release states.
