Last month, Louisiana FCU helped the local community kick start their spring-cleaning with free unlimited shredding. This two-hour shred event was hosted at the Belle Terre branch. Members of the community were encouraged to come out and shred items including bank statements, medical records, pay stubs, old tax returns, insurance records, credit card statement, and even old driver's licenses or passports.
"Thieves look for every opportunity to gain access to personal private information and sensitive materials. By shredding your important documents, it reduces the likelihood of identity theft, and it saves you from the headaches and worry of identity theft. Shredding gives you a sense of safety and security knowing that your personal information is protected. We're happy to provide this service free of charge to our community," stated Tracey Huff, Director of Compliance and Risk at the credit union.
In just two hours, Louisiana FCU helped over 60 people shred truckloads of paperwork and important documents. At the end of the event, 3,890 lbs. of paper had been shredded.
