ALTOONA – Area residents are invited to properly dispose of important documents at the upcoming Shredding with Schmitt event hosted by Rep. Lou Schmitt (R-Altoona). The free event will be held at People’s Natural Gas Field (Curve Stadium), located at 1000 Park Ave., Altoona, on Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 4-7 p.m.

“All documents brought by residents will be shredded. Destroying documents that contain personal information, such as a person’s full name, address, bank account information and Social Security number, is a key step in preventing identity theft,” Schmitt said.

Residents are encouraged to bring documents that contain credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, medical information and bank account information to be shredded. Residents are asked to bring papers and documents in loose form. Magazines, books or trash will not be accepted. This is an event for residents only; no businesses, please.

Donations for the Central Pennsylvania Humane Society will be accepted during the event.
