With the ocean of personal financial documents we all have -- ATM receipts, credit card receipts, bills, unsolicited credit offers and more -- it’s no wonder that identity theft is a growing problem.
WJXT Channel 4, The Local Station, Shred-it, Florida State College at Jacksonville and Family Foundations have partnered to invite consumers and businesses to protect their identities by shredding unwanted personal, financial or confidential documents.
The Shredder Day event will be from 7-11 a.m. May 7 at FSCJ's Downtown Campus at 101 West State St. in Jacksonville.
During the event, anyone can bring documents in and have them shredded by an on-site, certified Shred-it employee. From drop-off to destruction, all documents will be constantly monitored and protected.
Because of the expected demand, participants are asked to only shred five boxes of paper material at a time. If you have more than five boxes, you can feel free to join the line again.
Donations will be accepted to help provide 10,000 local preschoolars with a student savings kit.
