“We really missed seeing our community out last year due to the pandemic and are excited to welcome people back and help them securely dispose of their sensitive documents and electronics,” said Todd Andrus, Redwood Credit Union’s Ukiah
branch experience manager. “Shredding old financial documents and other confidential paperwork is one of the best measures people can take to protect themselves from identity theft.”
Attendees may bring up to three standard-sized boxes (15”x12”x10”) of confidential documents for shredding, such as old financial statements, canceled checks, and credit card offers. Conservation Corps North Bay will also be on site
to collect and recycle e-waste such as old computers, printers, cell phones, and personal electronics.
Nonperishable food and monetary donations will be accepted at the event to benefit Redwood Empire Food Bank, a Northern California nonprofit committed to making adequate nutrition available and accessible
to those who need it.
