Every two seconds someone’s identity is stolen—don’t let it be yours! AARP Utah and Fox 13 are holding shredding events in two locations on Saturday, July 13 from 8am—11am; at the Golden Spike Event Center at 1000 North 1200 West in Ogden, and a new location in Salt Lake City at the Shred-it facility at 4325 Commercial Way. All of the shredding will be done on-site by trained Shred-it employees. We thank them for their generosity for donating their services!
