Willamette Community Bank to Hold Free Community Shred Event in Albany - 10/17/19

SALEM, Ore. – Oct. 17, 2019 – In celebration of Oregon Community Bank Week taking place this October and sponsored by the Community Banks of Oregon, Willamette Community Bank in Albany 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.

Willamette Community Bank invites community members to have their paper documents securely destroyed and recycled by a mobile shredding truck on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 200 Ferry Street S.W.
