I am really inspired by the work I see Challenge Enterprise does for the community. I have gone to several local events and I'm amazed with the difference Challenge makes with the people with disabilities. We are very lucky to have an organization in our community that cares about people and they help people with learning disabilities to be self efficient. I'm grateful for an organization like Challenge Enterprises!

I have taken advantage of the free shredding service several times. It's a great help to have a place to shred household documents without having to spend a lot of money and I truly appreciate it.

The Challenge enterprise group homes, ADT and support staff set the bar high. The individuals they serve have a wonderful life, great staff and lots of activity choices. They truly have a full life thanks to Challenge.

I read in the Times Union that Challenge Enterprises in Clay County, would delete personal household documents ( old tax statements, bank records, even junk mail etc) free of charge, every Tuesday and Thursday. Since my little shredder could not handle all the old documents, etc, I decided to try their free service

I was very surprised how easy the process went when I arrived to deliver my documents.
The Receptionist was very peasant and completed my first process very easily.
When I drove around to the rear to unload, the young man who greeted me, wasted no time in assisting me. They even took old magazines and some books without hard covers.

Excellent "FREE" service. Plus, they are keeping a lot of paper out of the Landfill.

Roll out the drums and blare the trumpets loudly to recognize an incredible non-profit organization hidden away in the small community of Green Cove Springs. Challenge Enterprises of North Florida, Inc, deserves local, state and even national recognition for their love of community and services provided to the larger community of Jacksonville. I had an older family member have her identity stolen because she placed some personal bank information in regular recycle. Since then I have used the Free Shred Services of Challenge Enterprises and really appreciate their commitment to the community by offering these services. They hire the disabled and less fortunate thereby giving them a sense of pride and accomplishment in their lives. Lighthouse Learning Center offers structured preschool training for all children up to age 5, whether they are typically developing or have a disability such as Down's Syndrome. Kudos to Challenge Enterprises of North Florida and a big shout out of 'THANKS" for all you do for our community. Norma Jean May

I most highly recommend this organization for the work they do in the community as well as the very helpful shredding service. I have used them to shred documents for my home as well as my business and I will continue to do so. Keep up the fabulous work!

Challenge Enterprises offers a great service to our community, a shredding service for individuals. I have toured their facility and know this is a safe and well-protected service offered free of charge (donations gladly accepted). Contact Challenge Enterprises for days, times and other details.

The ability to dispose of personal papers that need to be shredded/destroyed is needed by everyone at some time or other. To be able to do this at no cost is even better. The personnel at the collection area were very helpful, not only with the registration, but the actual transfer of my large amount of personal papers that needed shredding. They did it all!!! Kudos to the entire Challenge Enterprises of North Florida, Inc operation.
