Redwood Credit Union Shred-a-Thon Provides
Secure Document Shredding to Marin Residents
Approximately 700 Locals Attended Free Shred-a-Thon Event in Novato
Novato, Calif – Redwood Credit Union (RCU) hosted a free document shredding event at Novato Community Hospital on Saturday, June 2, 2018. Approximately 700 local residents brought old financial documents and other confidential paperwork—37,500 lbs in total—to be shredded by Shred-IT who provided shredding trucks on-site for the Credit Union’s annual Shred-a-Thon event.
“Shredding sensitive documents—such as old financial statements and bills—is one of the best precautions people can take against identity theft, so we were happy to once again provide this service to our community,” said Reid Louie, AVP Regional Manager Branch Operations, Marin. RCU also offered e-waste disposal at the event, through Conservation Corps North Bay, and collected nearly 2,800 lbs. of old electronics to be recycled.
In addition to the shredding service and e-waste collection, RCU also collected $2,486 in monetary donations at the event to benefit SchoolsRule Marin, a coalition of 20 school foundations that helps fund literacy, technology, and art programs for every public school student in Marin County, to provide a well-rounded education for all. RCU makes a donation to SchoolsRule every time a Marin resident makes a purchase using an RCU debit or credit card. Details of the program are available at www.redwoodcu.org/schoolsrule
RCU will be holding additional Shred-a-Thons this summer in Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino Counties. To learn more, visit www.redwoodcu.org/shred.
