The 15th-annual Tietze Shred, a document destruction event and fundraiser, is scheduled for this weekend.

Bring paper that needs to be shred to the parking lot at Skillman Church of Christ (3014 Skillman St.). It’s $8 for up to one standard banker’s box, approximately 30 pounds. Each additional box costs $5, and neighbors 65 years and older get a discount, with each box costing $5 to shred.

On-site shredding is provided by Sierra Shred.

This event will benefit Friends of Tietze Park, and 10% of the proceeds will support Skillman Church’s local ministries.

Tietze Shred is scheduled for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. March 26.
