Oregon Bankers Assn. – 10/13/21 10:57 AM
According to a 2019 Shred-it Fraud Awareness Week Report, more than a quarter (27%) of Americans do not shred paper or physical documents containing sensitive information before throwing them away at home. With identify fraud on the rise and now affecting millions of U.S. consumers, securely destroying documents that contain personal information is one of the best ways consumers can protect themselves from would-be identity thieves.
Pioneer Trust Bank invites community members to “Shred & Bank Responsibly” by dropping off their food donations and their paper documents. There is a 10-box limit on shredding documents, which will be securely destroyed and recycled by an onsite mobile shredding truck. The community shred event is taking place Saturday, Oct. 16 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Pioneer Trust Bank Medical Center Branch located at 1190 Oak Street SE in Salem.
