South Carolina Federal Credit Union Hosting Free Document Shredding Event July 13th

Staff Report From South Carolina CEO

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019

South Carolina Federal Credit Union is hosting a free document shredding event on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its David McLeod financial center, located at 2321 Trade Court, Florence, South Carolina.

The credit union is working with Shred-It Document Management to aid members and the public in the fight against identity theft and fraud. Shredding personal documents helps prevent information leaks and security breaches, reduces storage costs and increases peace of mind.

Document shredding is one of the best ways to protect your identity when disposing of financial documents and paperwork with personal information. Participants are limited to four file boxes (or 100 pounds) of paper each. All attendees can enter to win a $100 gift card on site.

At the credit union's last shred event in June, attendees shredded over 9,000 pounds of paper. As the paper is recycled, the shredded material helped save 31,581 gallons of water, 77 trees and 14 cubic yards of land fill.
