SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 1, 2013—Golden 1 Credit Union will host a free community Shred Event on Saturday, April 20, 2013, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the credit union’s Operations Center, located at 8945 Cal Center Drive, near the intersection of Watt Avenue and Folsom Boulevard in Sacramento.
At this biannual event, the public is invited to drive up and drop off up to five banker’s boxes filled with their confidential and personal documents. Golden 1 has teamed up with Iron Mountain to handle the unloading and on-site shredding of documents. All shredded remnants will be recycled.
Shredding documents that have personal or confidential information (such as medical records, financial account numbers, Social Security numbers, or signatures) helps prevent fraud and identity theft by keeping this confidential information out of the wrong hands.
"By providing free shredding services we help people safeguard their financial accounts, credit histories, and private information," said Donna A. Bland, President and CEO of Golden 1. "These Shred Events help make a positive difference in our communities."
At the credit union’s fall 2012 Shred Event in Sacramento, more than 139,000 pounds of confidential material were safely destroyed for approximately 2,700 individuals. More than 1,092,000 pounds of confidential information have been destroyed at these events since Golden 1 began hosting them in 2006.
Golden 1 Credit Union is California's leading credit union, with 83 branches, $8 billion in assets and more than 630,000 members. For more information, please visit golden1.com.
