     Shred-it and Cherokee Indian Hospital are helping consumers fight identity theft by organizing a Community Shred campaign scheduled for Friday, Aug. 3 from 3-5pm at the Hospital. 

     In the United States, 1 out of every 10 consumers has already been a victim of Identity Theft.

     Shred-it, the world’s leading on site document destruction company will bring their expertise to the Cherokee Indian Hospital to help people take action against identity theft and fraud. Shred-it mobile shredding trucks will be on site and consumers are invited to bring 3 copy paper boxes or 3 46 gallon trash bags for shredding. (Boxes and bags must be intact with no tears or rips. Reusable bags, boxes and containers will be returned) 

     “The best safeguard against personal identity theft is to regularly destroy confidential personal and business documents,” says John Stewart, Regional Sales Manager of Shred-it, Greenville/Asheville. “We help our clients protect themselves and their customers every day by destroying documents that are no longer needed. Organizing Community Shred events across America raises awareness about the dangers of identity theft and fraud and encourages consumers and businesses to take the necessary steps to protect themselves from these crimes.”

     “The Green Committee at Cherokee Indian Hospital is honored to partner with Shred It and offer this service to our community.  Many times our community doesn’t know what to do with documents and the service will give them a chance to dispose of them properly.
