Just because Challenge Enterprises is located in a small, sleepy Florida town, doesn't mean it's not a super non-profit organization. Several years ago, I was looking for a shredding organization for home business and personal documents that charged a reasonable price. Much to my delight, I found that Challenge Enterprises, through its' Shred For Good organization, would provide shredding services free to the community on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Wow, I thought, what a great community service. Then upon using their free services, I discovered that they hire people with disabilities who would have little or no opportunity with other companies in their area. Another great community service. I know of many good non-profits in the greater Jacksonville area and would highly recommend Challenge as a great non-profit. They are definitely on my top ten list and should be on yours. Thank you.

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
WONDERFUL charity that provides valuable service to the community as well as giving those with special needs an honest job.
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 been working with Challenge Enterprises for close to 10 years and it is "someplace special." It is a happy, caring organization and it brings joy to all who visit.
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.
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.
I have used the Shred for Good by Challenge Enterprises of NFL service for many years. I truly appreciate the service they provide and that they do these services while providing a wonderful environment for those with disabilities to enjoy a fulfilling job. Each time I go to the office everyone is extremely friendly and helpful! Thank you so much for all you do!
