The event was a complete success. On Saturday, April 10, in the participating locations (Commerce Banks across the greater KC area), we helped shred 126,210 lbs (63 tons) of sensitive documents in four hours.
At times, we had lines of cars around the block, waiting their turn to shred.
While the service was free, TLC for Children and Families took donations to help abused children and spouses. They received $9,400 in donations from the shredders. This is a yearly event, so if you missed it, be sure to check in with us next year!
