More protection against identity theft: Carver Financial Services offers free shredding on Saturday, May 10

Carver Financial Services, Mentor’s nationally recognized financial services organization, is once again teaming up with Northcoast Shredding Services to help you get rid of those vulnerable, sensitive, confidential documents — the cancelled checks, health information, credit card statements and other records that are so attractive to the wrong people.

On Saturday, May 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can take up to three boxes of paper documents to Carver Financial Services at 7473 Center Street (map) in Mentor, where Mentor High School National Honor Society volunteers will help unload them from your vehicle. (Please, no binders, large metal clips, magazines, or newspapers.)

Northcoast Shredding Services will have a mobile shredding unit on-site. Once they have shredded your documents, the shreds will be sent to a paper mill and properly recycled.

The shredding service is free, but Carver Financial Services will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items for local food banks. For more information, see the Carver Financial Services website.
