    NBC4 Allstate Community Shred Scheduled for Dec. 12

    Looking for a way to get rid of personal documents? NBC4's next Community Shred is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12.

    It's set for 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Manassas, Virginia campus of Northern Virginia's Community College. The address is 6901 Sudley Road, Manassas, Virginia 20109.

    Shredding is the easiest way to prevent identity theft, so bring your old bank statements and other private documents. There is a five-box maximum per each personal car.

    If you plan on going to the shred, you must be in line on Nova Way by 11 a.m. For safety reasons, organizers have requested that people remain in their vehicles. No business vehicles are permitted.

    This year local food banks SERVE and ACTS will be collecting non-perishable items to help fulfill a growing need during the holidays. They are asking for those coming to the Shred event to please bring a non-perishable food or household item to donate.

    There will be collection bins on site and patrons will not need to leave their vehicles. 

    Here is a list of requested items: 

    • Canned Tuna or other meat
