Parkview Community Federal Credit Union will hold a community-wide shredding event at 10 a.m. July 15 in the parking lot of Norwin Middle School, 10870 Mockingbird Drive, North Huntingdon Twp., a spokeswoman said.

Although the event is free, the McKeesport-based credit union is asking all participants to make a donation to benefit Jamie's Dream Team.

The event will end at 1 p.m. or when the truck is full.

Personal unwanted documents will be shredded on site by the same company the credit union uses, the spokewoman said.

Only items with personal data will be accepted, including documents that have Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or bank account information, and no recycling --- such as Christmas cards, magazines or newspapers --- can be accepted. No books, binders or binder clips can be shredded.

For more information, call (412) 678-9564.
