Neighbors Credit Union aids community with Shred Day
ST. LOUIS, MO (June 15, 2016) — On April 30, 2016 Neighbors Credit Union hosted their 11th annual Shred Day.
Neighbors Credit Union teamed up with Shred-It, a document shredding company, to provide the community with the opportunity to shred documents containing personal information. The credit union served over 106 members and area residents within a three-hour period with a total of 6,110 pounds of paper being shredded.
“It was a rainy, dismal day but that did not stop our members and area residents from stopping by to drop off their personal and confidential documents for shredding,” stated Denise Brady, Neighbors Credit Union Vice President of Retail Sales and Service. “The nice part about this service is – members place their documents into a container, then the container is emptied into the shredding truck and shredded immediately. Members can even view a monitor to see the destruction of their documents. Our members are always very grateful to us for providing this service. I think it gives them peace of mind.”
