Arizona State Credit Union’s Shred-A-Thon Offers Flagstaff Residents a Second Opportunity to Protect Against Identity Theft
Credit Union Encourages Community Members to Shred Old Documents
PHOENIX, Ariz. –Arizona State Credit Union’s Shred-A-Thon will make its second stop in Flagstaff on Tuesday, August 9, before completing the 2011 tour with stops in Prescott and Prescott Valley. This free event helps members of the community by raising awareness about the importance of shredding personal documents to protect against identity theft.
“I am inspired by the turnout we’ve had during this Shred-A-Thon tour and encourage the Flagstaff community to drop off their old documents for shredding and recycling if they were unable to attend the previous Flagstaff event a few weeks ago,” said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit Union. “East Flagstaff shredded 2,400 pounds of documents, which alone saved 12 trees. This is a sizeable contribution and I’m confident that Flagstaff residents will continue to add to this total at the second event.”
Documents to bring to the Shred-A-Thons include bank statements, tax returns, medical bills, credit card statements and other personal documents. Arizona State Credit Union will offer $100 to anyone who opens a checking account with direct deposit during any of the events.
Shred-A-Thons will be hosted from 11 AM to 2 PM and are open to all members of the community. Below is a list of the remaining locations and dates:
|Flagstaff, Beaver St. ||Tuesday, August 9 |
|Prescott Willow Creek ||Tuesday, September 13 |
|Prescott Valley ||Tuesday, October 11 |
