their documents included Andrew Candela and Carol Cooper.
Ferndale, Michigan – Approximately 400 members turned out on Saturday, October 25, 2014 to the Credit Union ONE Macomb Branch to participate in a document shred day. Over five tons of documents were collected for shredding as participants took the opportunity to protect themselves from identity theft and fraud.
“The response continues to grow as more members are becoming aware of the dangers of identity theft and fraud," said John Kozich, Credit Union ONE Vice President of Community Relations. "Every year several million people are victims of identity theft. To create an awareness about the risks of identity theft and fraud, and to provide a safe and convenient way to dispose of unneeded paperwork, we have been holding document shred events for our members, and we plan to continue offering this service at various Credit Union ONE locations.”
In addition to the success of the shredding event, generous members donated over $150 to support the Children’s Miracle Network while at the event.
"This was a great opportunity to get some shredding done, and to donate to a great cause," said Andrew Candela, Credit Union ONE member.
Shred Corp., the industry-leading document recycling company donated their time and equipment to provide secure on-site shredding services. After the event, the shredded paper waste was taken away for recycling into paper towel.
