It’s time for people to turn their unwanted, but confidential correspondence into confetti.
On Saturday, May 13, the Oceanside Community Safety Volunteers and Oceanside RCMP will team up with Save-On-Foods and BEST Shredding to host a confidential paper shredding event.
The confidential shredding event will be held from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. at the Wembley Mall, located at 826 Island Highway W. in Parksville.
The event is open to residents and businesses. For a suggested donation of $10 per banker’s box, people’s documents will be professionally and confidentially shredded on site.
“Shredding documents containing personal information is a great way to combat fraud, impersonation and identity theft,” said Cpl. Foreman, RCMP spokesperson.
A portion of donations will go to the B.C. Children’s Hospital and to the new 529 Garage bicycle registration program.
