Support South Okanagan Similkameen Crime Stoppers this month by shredding old documents at UPS in Penticton

Shred docs, stop crime

You can help solve crime in the South Okanagan-Similkameen this month by simply shredding your unwanted documents.

SOS Crime Stoppers and The UPS Store in Penticton have partnered up for the month of March, with the store donating net proceeds from all shredding services.

Since the local Crime Stoppers unit receives no government funding and relies on donations, the partnership is welcome, especially after a year of COVID-19 restrictions.

They were unable to hold their annual fundraising dinner and live auction in 2020, and the 2021 iteration is unlikely to proceed either.

SOS Crime Stoppers has been operating since 1992, recovering over $14 million in drugs and $2 million in stolen property during that time.

Help out the organization by bundling up your old documents and taking them to the UPS Store at 437 Martin Street in Penticton to be disposed of securely.

And as always contact SOS Crime Stoppers with crime tips anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
