Shred Day - Saturday, May 11th, 2024


Join Us for Shred Day: Protect Your Identity While Supporting Voices of Hope!

Are you drowning in a sea of old documents cluttering your home? Do you worry about identity theft and want to securely dispose of sensitive information? Well, mark your calendars because our annual Shred Day is just around the corner! Join us on Saturday, May 11th, from 9 to 11 am at our 4638 W Street location.

At our Shred Day event, we're providing a safe and convenient way for you to dispose of your confidential documents, with shredding provided by Paper Tiger Shredding. Simply bring your old financial statements, tax documents, credit card bills, and any other paperwork containing personal information, and we'll take care of the shredding for you – for free!

 In addition to shredding your documents, we're also accepting donations for Voices of Hope. Please see below for the list of most needed items. Your generosity can make a real difference in the lives of those in need, so please consider giving what you can.

Now, let's talk about shredding securely. Identity theft is a real threat, but you can take steps to protect yourself. Here are some tips to ensure your documents are shredded safely:

  1. Use a Cross-Cut Shredder: Cross-cut shredders cut documents into tiny, confetti-like pieces, making it nearly impossible for thieves to reconstruct your sensitive information.

  2. Shred Everything: Don't just focus on financial documents – shred anything with personal information, including old bills, receipts, and even junk mail with your name and address.

  3. Enroll in E-Statements: Want to skip the line at Shred Day? Enroll in e-statements! By receiving your statements electronically, you can eliminate the need for paper statements altogether, reducing the risk of identity theft and helping the environment at the same time.

Remember, protecting your identity is essential in today's digital world, and shredding your documents is a crucial step in safeguarding your personal information. So, gather up those old papers, mark your calendar for Shred Day, and join us in supporting Voices of Hope!
