RICHLAND -- Community members can shred personal documents at an upcoming community shred event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Fred Meyer, 101 Wellsian Way, Richland.
Cost is $5 for each grocery bag of documents and $10 for each archive box.
The event is designed to prevent identity theft. It is safer to shred confidential documents than deposing of them normally, according to a press release.
The shred is sponsored by Fred Meyer and Shred-It, a paper and document shredding services company.
Proceeds will benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital.
