Paper shredding for Crime Stoppers

NANAIMO – Paper shredding fundraiser supports Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers program.

Nanaimo and District Crime Stoppers and Save-On-Food will host their second confidential documents shredding day.

The event happens Saturday (Aug. 10) 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. when anyone can drop off documents and have them shredded for a $10 donation.

The shredding service is provided compliments of Island Document Storage and Shredding at Terminal Park Save-On-Foods parking lot where Crime Stoppers volunteers will also be barbecuing hot dogs and hamburgers.

The event is being hosted to raise cash for Crime Stoppers and to raise awareness about identity theft and the need to keep documents and identification secure to avoid becoming a victim of the crime.
