The city of Kent and HomeStreet Bank will host a free Shred-a-thon for residents to help prevent identity theft from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Saturday at the HomeStreet Bank parking lot, 505 Harrison St.
Residents should bring paper documents with personal and sensitive information. The shredder cannot process metal, plastic bags or DVDs.
In order to serve more individuals, each resident will be limited to three grocery bags of materials.
The event will run until 2 p.m. or until the shredding truck is full, whichever comes first.
