BBB Shred Event in Omaha Cancelled Due to Weather Forecast

October 12, 2017

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Nebraska, South Dakota and Southwest Iowa regrets that it will have to cancel its fall Shred Event that was scheduled for this Saturday, October 14th in Omaha at Methodist Health System’s parking lot at 85th and Dodge. This cancellation is because of a 90% or higher chance of thunderstorms in the morning. BBB has determined that it would not be safe for consumers, staff and all other workers and volunteers. “We regret this cancellation very much, but everyone’s safety is of the utmost importance,” stated BBB President Jim Hegarty. “Look for the announcement of our spring shred event in April, 2018 and bring your saved documents to us to shred, then.”
