Regional Shred-A-Thon Scheduled

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Businesses and families are invited to haul their shred-worthy materials to 6148 Lee Hwy, One Park Place, just across from Sam’s club on June 24 between 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Docu-Shred, LLC will have its industrial shredder onsite for all to use for free.

“We have a small shredder which works fine for little daily jobs, but I hate using it for huge shred jobs”, said Dave Buck, director of the Chattanooga Autism Center. “If we have several boxes of sensitive files, it’s much faster to take them to the Shred-a-thon for free.

The event is being sponsored by Babb Financial Group. “We’re keenly aware of the growth of identity theft and the importance of proper document disposal” said Jeff Babb.  Babb Financial coordinated this event so shredding could be more convenient. They strongly encourage shredding check stubs, credit card offers, receipts, and any other documents containing personal data. Big shredding jobs are not a problem.

The event is free. The Chattanooga Autism Center will be onsite to help out and tax deductible donations to their organization are accepted.
