Northern Arizona University is joining in the statewide Shred-A-Thon event next week to prevent identity theft.

Community members are invited to bring unwanted documents for shredding to the Target parking lot between 4:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Monday, April 23. Up to five bags or boxes of documents will be shredded free of charge per individual, with additional bags or boxes shredded for $3 each.

NAU’s Office of Student Life, Shred-It, Target, the Maricopa County Attorney’s office and several other organizations are supporting the event.

Volunteers are needed for morning and evening shifts. For information, contact Rick Brandel, dean of students, at Rick.Brandel@nau.edu
