Protect yourself from identity theft and help the hungry at the same time by bringing food donations to the Fraud Watch Network Shred-a-Thon at the Big Island Record and Destruction Center in Kailua-Kona on Saturday, April 22, from 8 a.m. to noon.

AARP Hawaii and Access Corporation are sponsoring the free, safe document shredding and food collection events.

The Fraud Watch Network Shred-a-Thon comes just after tax season, when many people discard their obsolete financial documents.

Drop-offs will be limited to two bags or boxes per vehicle. Drive up and drop off boxes and bring donations of brown rice and canned goods to benefit Hawai‘i’s hungry families through the Hawaii Food Bank at the same time.

Staples and paperclips do not need to be removed. Due to safety and traffic-flow concerns, participants will not be allowed to get out of their cars and boxes and bags will not be returned.

Walk-ups will not be allowed.
