Credit Union ONE members take advantage of Ferndale document shredding day


Credit Union ONE Member Sandra Harl

Ferndale, Michigan – When important information gets into the wrong hands it can be devastating for those affected.

In an effort to help their members and the community at large, Credit Union ONE held a document shredding day at their Ferndale location on Saturday, May 30, 2015. More than 2,500 pounds of confidential personal and business documents were shredded on-site at the event.
 
Documents containing information such as social security numbers, addresses, account information, financial records or personal data, can be stolen and used to open lines of credit, use existing credit cards or to falsify personal information. Shredding documents that contain private information can protect individuals and businesses from fraudulent use of confidential data.
 
"Thanks to the help of Credit Union ONE I was able to purge my closet, giving me much needed space," said Credit Union ONE member Sandra Harl.
 
In addition to the success of the shredding event, generous members donated over $218 to support the Children’s Miracle Network while at the event.

“Every year Credit Union ONE provides this valuable service for our members as a safe and convenient way to dispose of unneeded paperwork," said John Kozich, Vice President of Community Relations for Credit Union ONE.

Working closely with Shred Corp., the industry-leading company that donated their time and equipment to provide secure on-site shredding services, Credit Union ONE coordinated the three-hour event for their members. The shredded paper waste collected was taken away for recycling into paper towel.
 
 Credit Union ONE member Regina Chalmers said, "Document shred days are great for the community, and I am glad that I am a member of a credit union that provides this type of service."

Ferndale, Michigan - Recently Credit Union ONE staff and board members had the opportunity to join the Oakland County Chapter of Credit Unions on a bus trip for "Lansing Advocacy Day", May 6, 2015.

The goal for this annual event was to bring at least 40 credit union representatives from Oakland County to Lansing in an effort to build and maintain relationships with Oakland County lawmakers, and also to give credit union representatives exposure to credit union grassroots involvement.

Participants learn about important issues affecting credit unions in our state legislature, have the opportunity to network informally with Oakland County State Senators and Representatives, and provide a credit union perspective to our elected representatives.

The bus was full, the conversation was lively, and a successful day was had by all.
