WSECU to Hold Community Shred and Share Day

Old tax forms, account statements and medical records pose a serious identity theft threat, if not disposed of properly. That’s why WSECU is holding a free annual Community Shred & Share Day.

The credit union will have commercial document shredding partners on-site at eight branches and is offering free shredding of up to three file-sized boxes of old, sensitive documents for anyone who wants to participate.

WSECU will also be collecting donations for local community partners, including food banks and one “other bank” that collects things like toiletries and household supplies for those who need them.

“Of course,” said the credit union on their website, “we’ll also have a few treats and giveaways.”

The events take place Saturday, July 25 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. See below for participating branches and the community partners they are supporting.
