BBB Collecting Supplies for Fire Victims at Saturday’s Free Shredding Event in South San Francisco

Better Business Bureau (BBB) encourages the public to drop off much-needed supplies to help Northern California fire evacuees
October 12, 2017

Your BBB will be collecting donated supplies, benefitting those affected by the North Bay fires, at this Saturday’s “Secure Your ID Day” event, taking place from 10am-2pm in South San Francisco. We have been in contact with several shelters and affected Chambers of Commerce, and they have provided us with specific items that they really need. BBB will drop off these much-needed supplies to evacuee and animal shelters servicing fire victims Saturday after the event.

Come out to San Mateo Credit Union at 150 El Camino Real in South San Francisco Saturday, October 14 to both protect your identity by shredding up to five boxes of personal documents, and also to help Northern California communities devastated by wildfires. We hope to see you there!
