The Crime Alert Shred Day held Saturday April 19th from 9 AM to 3 PM was a great success. We partnered with the Front Street Animal Shelter this year. Although the number of people who wanted their documents shredded was down from our previous shred days the participant’s generosity in donations made up for lack of people. We received donations totaling $1,388 which was split in half with the Front Street Animal Shelter ($694 each).
I wish to give a shout out to following people or businesses who made this event not only possible but extremely successful;
Cintas Document Shredding manager Danny Young and his crew who provided all the shred trucks.
Robert Bohem, Executive Team Leader, at Target Store, Riverside and Broadway. Robert authorized a designated portion of their parking lot for our event and provided water, ice and snacks for all the volunteers throughout the event.
