Several Valley businesses are joining together this weekend to provide South Texas residents with a safe place to shred confidential documents for free. On Saturday, November 15 from 10 AM to 2 PM, the Better Business Bureau, Lone Star National Bank, and the Lone Star Shredding and Document Storage Facility will allow Valley residents to shred documents free of charge at the Lone Star National Bank corporate office located at 3300 North Expressway 83 in Brownsville. Attendees can shred old bank statements, tax records, credit card statements and other confidential records. The event is aimed at reducing identity theft from discarded financial and personal information. For more details, contact the president of the BBB, Dolores Salinas, at (956) 968-7327.
