Desert Arc announces public shredding and recycling pop-up events

Desert Arc, who has for more than 62 years been serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Coachella Valley, Morongo Basin and outlying desert communities, has announced the debut of its Shred It and Forget It Fridays! program.

These public shredding and recycling events will take place on the third Friday of every month, from 9 a.m. to noon. Local area businesses and residents are invited to take part in disposing of their sensitive and confidential records while supporting the nonprofit organization.

“Desert Arc’s mission is to enhance the lives and create opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said Richard Balocco, the nonprofit’s president and CEO. “We are dedicated to social innovation, and our business services, such as the shredding and recycling division, is an example of an initiative that extends our impact by providing jobs and vocational training to those we serve and ultimately improves the well-being of individuals and communities.”
