Shredding Day is back for 2019 to support Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers operations.
The organization has again partnered with Save-On-Foods Brooks Landing and Best Shredding to shred personal and sensitive documents to and help fight crime in the community.
For a minimum $20 donation, personal and commercial documents will be shredded by employees of Best Shredding, a Vancouver Island-based confidential document shredding company.
The event happens Saturday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2000 Island Hwy.
Volunteers with Crime Stoppers and Nanaimo RCMP Victim Services will also be grilling up hamburgers and hotdogs, provided by Save-On-Foods, to pass the time with while waiting for documents to be shredded.
“Crime Stoppers is a registered non-profit organization that does not receive any form of government funding. It is not a police-based organization and it is run and maintained by community-minded volunteers. These events and other fundraisers are the backbone of our program and without community support, this valuable crime-fighting program could not succeed,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Crime Stoppers co-ordinator, in a press release. “Shredding confidential documents also reduces your chances of becoming a victim of identity theft, which can destroy you financially, wipe out your good credit and take years to recoup your financial and personal losses.”
