SLEEPY HOLLOW, N.Y. -- Wrapping up another year of taxes, Rey Insurance and Legal Shred of the Hudson Valley recently partnered to provide a free shred event to encourage residents to properly destroy their old documents -- and made a donation to the Humane Society of Westchester at New Rochelle.

Apart from freeing up space and getting rid of old documents like pay stubs, junk mail and confidential papers, Rey Insurance raised awareness about the importance of shredding to protect against identity theft.

"There was a great turnout and we were excited to see so many people come out to our event," said Linda Rey, principal of Rey Insurance. "In addition to helping protect our community from invasive privacy threats, we were happy to be able to raise money for our friends at the Humane Society of Westchester at New Rochelle."

Dozens of local residents came out to participate in the shredding event, including Miss Westchester 2016, Morgan Modugno, and their inspirational furry friend, A.J.

Rey's Insurance donated $5 for each shredded boxful.

"It was our pleasure to team with Rey Insurance to help the members of our community securely dispose of their confidential records," said Judith Papo, owner and president of Legal Shred of the Hudson Valley.

"In addition to the value of protecting the public from the heartache and expense of identity theft, over the course of the event we also shredded and recycled enough paper to save about 20 trees and 3 cubic yards of landfill."

The event was sponsored by Travelers Insurance and took place at the Rey Insurance office, located at 219 N. Broadway, in Sleepy Hollow.
