Bank First holding free shredding event

Bank First will be hosting a free shred event from 9 a.m. to noon June 1 at 835 E. Green Bay St., Shawano.

While this shred event is free and open to the public, Bank First is requesting that participants bring a non-perishable food donation in exchange for each bag of personal documents shredded. All food donations will go to area food pantries.

Shred events are an opportunity to protect identities while giving back to the community. With the risk of identity theft and fraud becoming more prevalent in today’s society, Bank First is offering community residents a way to property dispose of personal documents while also giving back to local food pantries. All types of sensitive documentation will be accepted for shredding, including old tax returns, bank and credit card statements, medical records, etc.

Confidential Records, an AAA-certified shredding company, will be providing a mobile shredding unit to destroy all personal and confidential documents. The company employs licensed and bonded document-destruction specialists and guarantee the secure removal of the destroyed documents.

To ensure enough shredding space is available for the public, businesses are not allowed to participate in this event. The event will be held rain or shine.
