Worried about ID Theft? Free Saturday Shred-a-Thon Open to Public

The public is invited to have sensitive documents shredded by the pros Saturday at Anaheim Stadium at an event geared toward preventing identity theft.

Bring up to five boxes – or five grocery bags – filled with junk mail, old tax records and other records with personal information and Cintas trucks will safely destroy the documents.

Hosted by the Automobile Club of Southern California and Experian’s ProtectMyID.com, the goal of the Shred-a-Thon is to protect the public from a crime with a growing number of victims.

More than 11 million people were victims last year, up 37 percent from the prior year, according to authorities.

For more details about the event, which runs from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., read Orange County Register coverage here.

Anaheim’s Anti-Graffiti Effort A Model For Other Cities

The community came out in force last weekend to clean up and paint over graffiti in the Glen-Neighbors neighborhood.

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim, Anaheim Beautiful and the city, neighbors toting garbage bags made a statement about wanting to maintain Anaheim’s reputation for being a safe and attractive place to live, officials said.

It’s the second Anaheim neighborhood adopted by community service groups. The Balsam-Curtis neighborhood has worked with Anaheim Beautiful and the city to reduce crime and clean up the neighborhood for more than a year.

The effort has garnered attention in the media – and from other cities.

A group of Anaheim officials will present their success story to Bakersfield police and city leaders Oct. 6, according to an article published in yesterday’s Orange County Register.
