(Leitchfield , KY) – A Community Shred It Day will be held on Saturday, April 20 so residents can safely dispose of sensitive documents and better protect themselves against identity theft.
The Community Shred It Day is sponsored by Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center and Shred-It document shredding specialists from Louisville. The event will be held in front of the Cave-Bland medical building on the TLRMC campus from 8 a.m. to Noon.
People can watch their Items shredded on site inside a specially outfitted commercial shredder. Staples, paper clips, hanging folders and rubber bands are fine. Three-ring binders must be removed. Items from businesses will not be allowed.
According to Pam Gonterman, Director of Health Information and HIPAA Privacy Officer at Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center, shredding is the best way to dispose of credit card and financial statements, old tax forms, pre-approved credit card offers, bills, checks, documents with personal identification numbers, magazine subscription labels and prescription bottle labels.
Participants are asked for a $2 cash donation for every box of material to be shredded. 100% of the proceeds will be split between Relay for Life and Wings on a Prayer.
