FRESNO, Calif., December 4, 2012—A Free Community Shred Event hosted by Golden 1 Credit Union on November 3, 2012, at the Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis helped approximately 375 individuals by shredding their private and confidential documents, CDs and floppy disks.
More than 17,000 pounds of confidential information was destroyed on site by Iron Mountain, which then took the shredded remnants to be recycled.
The Golden 1 Free Community Shred Events are an innovative way to help people protect themselves from identity theft and other related crimes. Documents that contain sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, are often targeted by thieves who are looking to commit fraud.
"Identity theft is a serious problem, and Golden 1 wants to help the public avoid the possibility of it happening to them," said Donna A. Bland, Golden 1’s President and CEO. "Our Shred Events keep personal and private information from falling into the wrong hands."
Golden 1 Credit Union is California’s leading credit union, with 83 branches, $7.9 billion in assets and more than 620,000 members.
This credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
