The event will take place at four Kohl’s locations, including Awhatukee, Chandler, Avondale and North Glendale. A donation of $5 per box or $10 for large boxes of items to be shredded is suggested to help support Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
“The event provides the public with an opportunity to help fight identity theft while helping to raise money for the Children’s Hospital,” says Kelley Johannsen, general manager of Shred-It. “The items that people can bring to shred include anything that contains your name, address, and/or phone number. You cannot be too safe when it comes to protecting your identity and the identity thieves are becoming more creative.”
Shred-it also shreds computer hard drives, expired plastic credit cards, outdated IDs, cell phone chips and driver’s licenses. For more information, call call 602-264-0400 or visit shredit.com. The company also is on Facebook .
