More than 600 Napa residents securely shredded sensitive documents at Redwood Credit Union’s annual Shred-a-Thon

SANTA ROSA, CA (July 25, 2018) — More than 600 Napa residents took action to protect themselves from financial fraud by shredding old financial records and other paperwork at Redwood Credit Union’s (RCU’s) free annual Shred-a-Thon, held at the County of Napa Sullivan Lot on Saturday, July 21, 2018. Sixteen RCU volunteers and four shredding trucks from Shred-IT were on-site at the event to help the community safely dispose of and recycle approximately 30,000 lbs of paper.

“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 Lindsay Jones, RCU’s Napa branch manager.

RCU also collected $1,800 in monetary donations at the event to benefit Puertas Abiertas Community Resource Center, an organization that works hand in hand with Latinos to inspire and achieve healthy living, self-sufficiency, and opportunities for leadership and community engagement.

RCU holds Shred-a-Thons annually in several of the communities it serves, with two additional upcoming events this summer in Santa Rosa and Ukiah. To learn more, visit
