FOX6 News is On Your Side, along with AARP Alabama, and we want to help protect you and your family from identity theft. We'll be hosting a shred-a-thon effort at multiple locations during the next six weeks. This is your chance to bring old documents for us to shred for you. The best part - it's a free service!
Join us on the following dates between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m.:
August 12 - Tuscaloosa - Old Books-a-Million parking lot
August 20 - Anniston - Anniston City Meeting Center
(1615 Noble Street)
August 27 - Birmingham - 1st Avenue S from 14th Street S to 16th Street S
(across from Railroad Park - enter on 16th Street side)
September 10 - Cullman - Old Walmart parking lot
(Hwy 31 and King Edward Street)
September 17 - Alabaster - Whitestone Shopping Center
In addition to this great chance to shred some old tax forms and private papers, you'll get the chance to meet some of the people you watch each day on FOX6. We look forward to bringing this free service to our viewers!
AN IMPORTANT NOTE: Please limit up to three garbage bags per person and please don't include 3-ring binders, spiral binders, or any plastic, metal, or household trash.
We're also asking folks coming out to consider bringing non-perishable food donations that will go to the local food banks in each city we'll be visiting.
Visit FTC.gov/idtheft for tips on how to report and prevent identity theft.
You can also visit AARP.org/FraudWatchNetwork for more details about spotting scams, avoiding credit card fraud and more.
