Your old bank statements, checks, credit card statements and offers can be shredded at The Village Family Service Center during Identity Theft Awareness Week. Free document shredding by Record Keepers will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 20 and 21 at 1201 25th St. S., Fargo. It’s a good idea to shred anything you don’t need anymore that contains personal and financial information. Material is limited to three banker boxes or four shopping bags. Cell phone recycling also will be provided by Wireless Alliance.
McGruff the Crime Dog will make an appearance Oct. 20, and free brats, chips and pop will be offered from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until they run out). Donations will be accepted for Nokomis Child Care Centers.
The Village’s Financial Resource Center is also sponsoring an ID Theft Presentation at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19.
