HomeTask Gives Back to the Community by Holding Shred Day in Burien’s Annual Clean Sweep

Hometask Plays Its Role as a Responsible and Environmentally-Conscious Company by Turning Unnecessary Paper Into Currency for Charities.

Seattle, WA, May 02, 2013 --(PR.com)-- HomeTask recently hosted Shred Day as its participation in Burien’s Annual Sweep Day. The event attracted numerous people who came forward to show their support and offer their services in this good cause and fun activity. HomeTask held this event to create awareness about the amount of paper that is wasted and how this waste can be used to help people out from all walks of life.

HomeTask is a unique and innovative company that helps keep properties running smoothly by providing the necessary repairs, improvements, and maintenance that homeowners may not find time to execute. It believes in delivering an unsurpassed level of service to customers throughout the country and that too at an affordable price. It's vast network of service providers ensures that there is no job left unattended to when it comes to the day to day running of residential or commercial properties.

This annual clean sweep was perfectly aligned with the company's long term goals because it believes in utilizing given resources in the best manner and deriving the most benefit from them. The owner of HomeTask, Jerrod Sessler, said, “HomeTask is well known for its social responsibility and the unique way in which we do business. Shred Day is one of the many important and practical things we do to show just how committed we are to the improvement of our surroundings.”

The event, which took place last Saturday between 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., attracted a large crowd. Dozens of volunteers showed up the morning of the weekend to do some serious shredding. The recommended contribution for shredding was $10 for the first box, and $5 for each additional box. This is quite reasonable compared to common shredding donations which are usually in the vicinity of $35 per box.

“The lower donation requirement reflects our ability to think out of the box to make a difference in a smart way,” HomeTask’s spokesperson commented. Pointing around to the people eagerly shredding away, he added, “You can see how it works. People want to do good things. They want to do great things; they just need a little help along the way. And HomeTask is in the business of making things easier for people.”

Considering the success of HomeTask’s Shred Day, this statement comes across as genuine and appreciated by all. The proceeds from the event go to local non-profits, some of which attended Shred Day.

From financial papers to confidential papers, people shredded a lot of paper. In addition to the heartfelt gratitude of the various local charities and non-profits, Shred Day’s volunteers were rewarded for their endeavors with breakfast, lunch and a chance to win prizes.

HomeTask’s Shred Day was part of Burien’s Clean Sweep which was presented by the city of Burien as well as the Discover Burien Association, and chiefly sponsored by Waste Management. Clean Sweep, which gathered over 8 tons of garbage last year, was attended by around 400 people. Shred Day was the perfect complement to an exceptional event and a great reflection on HomeTask’s ethical principles, innovative culture, and practical efforts to give back.
