UCCA Helps Prevent Identity Theft With Shredding Event


It was a warm summer’s day when a shredding truck pulled up to the parking lot of Our Lady of Mount Carmel church (23-25 Newtown Ave., Astoria). They were there in support of the United Community Civic Association’s (UCCA) free community shredding event, a semi-annual event held to benefit the community. UCCA has held these events in the past in order to protect residents of the Astoria and Long Island City areas from identity theft, the instances of which have risen over the last year. Just in 2017, the number of identity theft victims rose to 16.7 million individuals, putting the monetary value of data stolen at nearly $17 billion yearly. Identity theft is one of the most common forms of crime, and the United Community Civic Association has dedicated these events to making sure the residents of the neighborhood can take one more step in avoiding these problems and securing their information. Among the attendees were United Community Civic Association President Rose Marie Poveromo (third from l.), Ann Bruno, president of the 114th Precinct Community Council (second from l.), and two officers from the 114th Precinct. For information on the next community shredding event or other UCCA-sponsored events, please call 917- 742 6975.—Bronwyn Davila
