“Identity theft is a growing threat for individuals and businesses across the nation,” said POSA Vice President, Darlene Cook, in a prepared statement. “This trusted event continues to bring awareness of proper document management to the community and provide them with a secure method to safely dispose information. More importantly, it will provide individuals with the peace of mind that their sensitive information will not end up in the wrong hands.”

From drop-off to destruction, all documents will be constantly monitored and protected. Shred-It provides cost-effective document shredding, storage and imaging programs, the release said. Services are designed to provide businesses with data privacy and security, compliance with regulatory requirements and greater control and access to information.

The suggested donation is $3 per box, to benefit POSA Outreach and charitable events like “Covering The Bases” back-to-school event, “Sirens & Sleigh Bells” youth holiday gift program, and “KidCare ID” fingerprinting events, through financial and volunteer support.
