Fight Fraud – Shred Instead

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing white-collar crimes in the U.S. That’s why AARP is inviting you to bring old documents containing your personal information to our mobile shredding truck for free disposal Sept. 14. The event is co-sponsored by the State Attorney General’s Office, the Federal Trade Commission and Shred-it.

There is a limit of 5 boxes per person, and all documents shredded will be recycled. You can also pick up free information about how to protect yourself from identity theft.

AARP also invites you to support Create the Good® by bringing a contribution of non-perishable food items for Northwest Harvest. In an average month, Northwest Harvest programs provide nearly half a million services to people in need. More than half of those served are children and older adults.
