Sacramento, Calif., October 3, 2013 - Golden 1 Credit Union will host a free Shred Event on Saturday, October 26, 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.
This free event is open to all Golden 1 members and residents in the Sacramento region. Attendees are 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 with personal or confidential information (such as tax 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.
"Our free Golden 1 Shred Events are helping to make a positive difference in our communities," said Donna Bland, President and CEO of Golden 1 Credit Union. "These events have proven to be very popular. At our Shred Event in Sacramento last spring, we safely destroyed more than 152,000 pounds of confidential material for more than 2,700 individuals. And, since we began holding Shred Events in 2006, more than 1.2 million pounds (600 tons) of confidential documents have been safely destroyed."
With more than $8 billion in assets, Golden 1 is the seventh largest credit union in the United States. It has more than 640,000 members, 80 branches, and 270 ATMs.
This credit union is federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration.
