Sacramento, Calif., October 3, 2012—Golden 1 Credit Union will host a Free Community Shred Event on Saturday, October 13, 2012, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Golden 1 Operations Center, located at 8945 Cal Center Drive, near the intersection of Watt Avenue and Folsom Boulevard in Sacramento.
The public is invited to drive up and drop off up to five banker’s boxes full of their confidential and personal documents at this event. Golden 1 has teamed up with Iron Mountain to handle the shredding, and the shredded remnants will be recycled.
Shredding important documents that contain personal or confidential information—such as anything that has a signature, account number, Social Security number, or medical or legal information (plus credit offers)—is an important preventive to keep private information out of the wrong hands.
Last spring, Golden 1 safely disposed of a record-setting 172,000 pounds of sensitive material for more than 3,200 individuals at its community shred event.
"Providing shredding services is one way we can help people avoid identity theft and other types of fraud," said Donna A. Bland, President and CEO of Golden 1. “It’s part of our ongoing commitment to the community.”
The Golden 1 Credit Union is California’s leading credit union, with 83 branches, $7.9 billion in assets and more than 620,000 members.
