Shred day to benefit Nashville Crime Stoppers

October 2, 2010 A second community shred day, benefiting the Nashville Crime Stoppers program, has been scheduled for 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 16 at LP Field. Middle Tennessee residents are asked to bring sensitive documents they no longer want or need to the stadium's main parking lot, where the paper will be destroyed on the spot by Shred-it. The cost is $5 per banker box of records, and all proceeds will be donated to the Crime Stoppers reward fund, which is used to help solve felony crimes in Nashville. Detectives from the police department's fraud unit will be on hand to pass out tips on identify theft prevention and to answer questions. The Crime Stoppers' Pharma Trash Disposal, for prescription medication that is outdated or no longer needed, will also be on hand. The inaugural community shred day, held April 10, raised $8,700 for Crime Stoppers. — NICOLE YOUNGTHE TENNESSEAN
