Get documents shredded for free at Mill Creek event

Protect your identity by hauling that box full of sensitive paperwork that has your personal information, such as credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, medical information, even just your name and address, to a shredding event.

Secure Your Identity Day takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Mill Creek Town Center at AAA Washington, 15415 Main St., Suite 104.

Cintas will shred up to three boxes of documents and Verizon Hope Line will recycle old cellphones.

Those who attend may win a AAA membership, a year of premium identity monitoring from AllClearID or a personal document shredder. Drawings will be held for these and other prizes.

Clearpoint Credit Counseling Solutions is sponsoring the event. Call 425-337-1880 or go to tinyurl.com/oee8fsh for more information.
