If you watch television at night you know that criminals can learn a lot about you, by what is in your garbage can. It's a fact that a social security card or other sensitive information in the wrong hands can cause loads of hardship. The good news is, there is an event coming back to Sioux Falls, South Dakota to help you with your private information.

The Crime Stoppers Shred Event is coming back. The Shred Event is to help the community get rid of sensitive information and it also serves as a fundraiser for rewards and operating expenses.

In the past, I've helped out with the event with a live broadcast. While I was there I decided to help the volunteers out. I do remember that it was quite a workout and the long lines of shredders kept us hopping the entire time I was there. It was satisfying to see folks come in and drop off load after load, and box after box of paper to be shredded. Even more satisfying when I saw them go to their wallet and help the cause with a donation.
