To reduce the threat of people becoming victims of identity theft, Sussex County Federal Credit Union will be holding shred events at each of its four branch locations throughout the summer. Last year, Sussex County FCU community shred events collected more than 14,200 pounds of confidential and proprietary documents for shredding, therefore creating a secure peace of mind while also supporting recycling efforts.
Although citizens can’t protect themselves in all situations, they can minimize their risk. They can gather documents with personal information such as tax returns, bank statements, pay stubs, and cancelled checks and come to a free shred event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, Aug. 1, at the Lewes branch of Sussex County FCU, 34686 Old Postal Lane, Lewes, next to Bob Evans restaurant.
Attendees can bring up to 10 file boxes to secure for shredding, compliments of Lifestyle Document Management Inc. Enjoy a live radio remote with Eagle 97.7FM starting at noon along with refreshments and giveaways while supplies last.
