News Release
First Federal to Hold Free Community Shred Event in McMinnville - 10/08/19

SALEM, Ore. – Oct. 8, 2019 – In celebration of Oregon Community Bank Week taking place this October and sponsored by the Community Banks of Oregon, First Federal in McMinnville is holding a free document shredding event to help community members fight identify theft.

According to a 2018 Shred-it Fraud Awareness Week Survey, nearly 30% of consumers do not shred paper or physical documents containing sensitive information before throwing them away. With identify fraud on the rise and now effecting 16.7 million 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.

First Federal invites community members to have their paper documents securely destroyed and recycled by a mobile shredding truck on Saturday, Oct. 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 118 NE Third St. in McMinnville. For more information visit https://www.firstfedweb.com/Shred-Day.aspx.
