Neighbors Credit Union aids community with Shred Day
ST. LOUIS, MO (April 26, 2014) — Neighbors Credit Union hosted their 9th annual Shred Day. Neighbors Credit Union teamed up with Cintas, a document shredding company, to provide the community with the opportunity to shred documents containing personal information. The credit union served over 115 members and area residents within a three-hour period.
“Shred day was very successful this year. The day was beautiful and, while there was a line for more than two hours, everyone enjoyed the sunshine and great weather,” stated Denise Brady, Neighbors Credit Union Vice President of Retail Sales and Service. “Many members know that we hold the event in the spring so they save their confidential information and bring it to us once a year for proper destruction. At Neighbors, we are serious about protecting personal and confidential information and we encourage our members to do the same. This event allows members and residents to destroy critical information in the safest way possible.”
