Shred Fest, a free document shredding service to combat identify theft, will come to Grapevine Banquets, 333 Dick Road, Depew, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, or until shredding service trucks reach full capacity.
The shredding service is sponsored by AARP New York in conjunction with State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman’s Office. Acting Erie County District Attorney Michael J. Flaherty Jr. will oversee the event.
“Identity thieves are constantly coming up with new and creative ways to target and take advantage of victims – especially seniors,” Schneiderman said. “Shred Fest is an excellent opportunity to keep these scammers from getting hold of your sensitive personal information.”
