NC State Fair & Food Lion Surpass Goal

Food Lion and the NC State Fair passed their goal last Thursday. The Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina received 246,779 lbs of food from fairgoers! This was an increase of almost 10,000 pounds over last year setting a new Food Lion Hunger Relief Day collection record! The food donations are equivalent to more than 200,000 meals. According to other record counts, that’s equal to 27 African elephants, 20 monster trucks or a Boeing 747!

Thanks to everyone who participated by contributing to this very worthy cause! Enjoy the last day of the fair today, gates close at 11pm.

Local Event: Shred those Private Papers

From N&O reporter Sue Stock: Free shredding event Saturday…

The Better Business Bureau is hosting its bi-annual “Secure Your ID” event on Saturday, offering area residents the opportunity to shred secure documents.
On Saturday October 23, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., you can bring up to three boxes or bags of documents to the Coastal Federal Credit Union at 1000 St. Albans Drive in Raleigh. They will be shredded on the spot.
If you don’t have a shredder at home, this is a really good and important way to protect yourself from identity theft. Personally, I do have a shredder at home and I shred everything I do not want to keep that has my name and address on it. That may seem a little extreme, but I figure better safe than sorry.

Recommended items to bring to the shredding event and dispose of safely include:

  • Documents that include Social Security numbers, birthdates, PIN numbers or passwords
  • Banking documents and other financial information
  • Leases, contracts or letters that include signatures
  • Pre-approved credit card applications
  • Medical or dental bills
  • Travel itineraries
  • Used airline tickets
