As part of the fight against fraud and identity theft, AARP Idaho’s 2016 Shred Fest certainly proved its worth. AARP members descended on City Hall West in Boise to shred personal financial documents and other sensitive records. Before the event began, over 30 cars lined up to be the first in line. Over the next three hours, more than 500 cars pulled through delivering 800 boxes to be shredded. In total, AARP’s 2016 Shred Fest in Boise destroyed 16,000 pounds of documents.
