AARP in Yavapai County hosted a free Shred-a-Thon for the residents of Chino Valley on Nov 8th, as one way to help people protect themselves against Identity theft. AARP wishes to thank the coordination efforts and help on-site by the Town of Chino Valley (thank you Scott!) and the AZ Rangers, who provided necessary traffic control at the event. With 130 cars visiting the Shred event, and with AARP paying for the cost of the shredding as a community service, 8000 lbs of documents were shredded on-site by the Sir Speedy shredding truck. Thank you, Chino Valley residents, for visiting this inaugural AARP free Shred-a-thon in Chino! It is AARP’s pleasure to help the CV residents fight ID theft in the community!
