Many area residents came to the community event at St. Francis of Assisi in Astoria, where they were able to have all their sensitive documents shredded.

The shredding truck, provided by Data-Struction, was parked in the church’s parking lot from 9 am to 1 pm.

The event provides a quick, secure and easy way to shred old unwanted documents safely and securely, to avoid identity theft.

State Senator Jose Peralta, UCCA Vice President Carolyn Scarano and CB1 District Manager Florence Koulouris were present, as was Irene Stathatos, an UCCA Board member.

Poveromo noted that the event grows each year. “We are very pleased to present this annual event free of charge to the community,” she said. “Every year millions of people fall victim to identity theft. It’s events like these which serve the public’s safety from such an occurrence.” Poveromo added this was UCCA’s third free event for the community this year.—Jason D. Antos
