St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union holds Shred Day May 20th in Canton

OGDENSBURG, NY (May 17, 2017) — St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union will be holding their sixth annual Community Shred Day on Saturday, May 20th from 9am until 12 noon. The free event will take place at the Credit Union’s 33 Court Street location in Canton, New York.

“This free event is an important way for the Credit Union to help protect the community from the growing problem of ID theft,” said St. Lawrence Federal Credit Union CEO Todd Mashaw. “We take ID theft very seriously and Community Shred Day is a convenient and secure way for the community to safely dispose of invoices, tax returns, paycheck stubs and other personal documents that can be used by identity thieves to commit fraud.”

A mobile shredding truck will be on-site to securely and efficiently destroy confidential information. Those interested can participate by bringing important documents to the Credit Union the day of the event. Three-ring binders or hanging files are not allowed and there is a limit of 10 boxes per auto. Containers used to transport documents will be returned to those taking advantage of this free service.

Identity theft tops the Federal Trade Commission’s national ranking of consumer complaints. Identity theft is a crime that occurs when someone uses personally identifying information, such as name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without permission. Shredding personal documents is an excellent way to combat ID Fraud.
