Every two seconds, an identity is stolen. That adds up to over 15 million a year. Identity theft is a serious problem and many people are wondering how they can protect themselves from becoming a victim. One thing you can do is try your best to keep your personal information from falling in the wrong hands.

Shredding mail, documents, pre-approval letters, and other items with your personal information is a great place to start. We’d like to help you by providing an opportunity to shred those types of documents. Our FREE Community Shred Day is on September 10th at our Northwest Community branch! Each person can bring up to 8 boxes to shred, but please, no newspapers or magazines.
Not only will this help keep your personal information secure, but all of this paper will be recycled, which helps the environment. There will be two shred trucks on site operating as a drive-thru service. The branch will be open for all of your banking needs, and we will have giveaways, snacks, and light refreshments!
Mark your calendars for this Saturday, September 10th at 9 am for this great event and protect yourself from identity theft!
