1-26 Shred a Thon Save The DateThe City of Lake Mary and the Lake Mary Elder Affairs Commission will host the 12th annual Shred-A-Thon on Saturday, January 26, 2019 from 9:00am until 1:00pm. The event will be held at 660 Century Point, in the Digital Risk parking lot. Located a short distance from the Senior Center, exit Rinehart Road on Wallace Court and then turn right on Century Point. In January 2018, the event attracted more than 1,300 citizens and small businesses who shredded more than 49 tons of material.

The Shred-A-Thon is being repeated to maintain awareness of identity theft and to provide citizens and small businesses of Lake Mary and surrounding areas an opportunity to safely dispose of sensitive personal and business documents. The theft of sensitive personal information is a significant contributor to identity theft. Computer hard drives will also be destroyed on site.

Business and individual sponsors are critical to the success of the event. Committed as Gold Sponsors of this year’s event are Shred-it Orlando, the Rotary Club of Lake Mary, Park Jewelers and Waste Pro. (Click here for Sponsorship Form)

Supporting Sponsors contribute $50 or more and may place advertising, promotional material and coupons in special bags that will be given to the first 1,000 participants. All materials to be placed in the bags must be delivered to the Senior Center by the close of business on January 21.

All contributions, regardless of amount, are welcome and appreciated. The City of Lake Mary is recognized by the IRS as a 170 (c) organization permitted to accept donations, which may be tax deductible.

Funds raised since the inaugural event in 2007 have been used to expand Senior programs and activities as well as an expansion in 2017. Citizen participation at the Senior Center during the same period has increased by more than 55%. Attendance is expected to again top 27,000 this year.
