Dear Neighbor,
It's estimated that every year more than eight million Americans fall victim to identity theft, losing over 40 billion dollars annually.  How do criminals do it? They steal your personal information.
Fight fraud. Shred instead!

You're invited to a free shredding event hosted by AARP and Shred-It, a secure document destruction company.

Bring your financial statements, cancelled checks, credit card statements and pre-approval offers, payroll stubs, insurance forms and out dated medical records for shredding.  Protect yourself from identity theft and shred old documents that contain personal information.

You can shred up to five bags or one medium sized box.  This free event is for individuals only -- companies not allowed.

AARP staff and volunteers will be on hand to help you with your materials and provide information about identity theft and consumer fraud.

Powered by nearly 500,000 members, AARP Louisiana is a champion for all generations to live their best lives, independently, in their own homes and communities.  Discover more of what AARP and its army of volunteers do in Louisiana at
