It’s time for a little spring cleaning. You can start by emptying your file cabinets of sensitive and unnecessary documents.
The JJ Pearce marching band will host a drive-up Shred-a-thon 11 a.m.-1 p.m. May 19 at the high school to help neighbors avoid identity theft while getting rid of old bills, receipts, bank statements and other personal papers. Don’t worry about staples or paper clips, but be sure to remove any other metal, plastic or glass items.
This is a fundraiser, so there’s a suggested donation of $10 per banker-sized box of papers and $5 for every box after that. Bring cash only. The money goes to support the Pearce, Parkhill and Richardson North bands.
