Don’t have the time or desire to go through all that old paperwork cluttering up your desk, but afraid to throw it out because of all that personal information? Bring those papers you’re hoarding to the Pima County Sheriff’s Department Shred-A-Thon at Casas Church in Oro Valley on Saturday.

PCSD and Shred-It are hosting the free event aimed at educating the public about identity theft, said spokeswoman Deputy Courtney Rodriguez in a press release.

“By shredding old documents, you can decrease the chances of thieves stealing and assuming your identity,” Rodriguez said.

The Shred-A-Thon will be from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the church‘s
parking lot, 10801 N. La Cholla Blvd. An attendant will pick up
documents from drivers at their vehicles and take them to a bin to be
shredded.

For more information, call 351-4615.
