400 Napa Residents Securely Shredded Sensitive Documents at Redwood Credit Union's annual Shred-a-Thon
Napa, Calif - Approximately 400 Napa residents took action to protect themselves from fraud by shredding old financial records and other paperwork at Redwood Credit Union's (RCU's) free annual Shred-a-Thon on June 29,
2019. Shred-IT trucks were on site Saturday at the County of Napa Sullivan Lot to help the community safely dispose of and recycle approximately 30,000
lbs of paper.
"Shredding sensitive documents—such as old financial statements and bills—is one of the best precautions people can take against identity theft, so we were happy to once again provide this service to our community,"" said Mario Gutierrez,
RCU’s Napa branch manager.
RCU also collected $1,600 in monetary donations at the event to benefit Puertas Abiertas Community Resource Center, an organization that works hand in hand with Latinos to inspire
and achieve healthy living, self-sufficiency, and opportunities for leadership and community engagement.
RCU holds Shred-a-Thons annually in several of the communities it serves, with two additional upcoming events this summer in Santa Rosa and Ukiah. To learn more, visit www.redwoodcu.org/shred.
