Arizona State Credit Union Helps Prevent Identity Theft in 5 th Annual Shred-a …

PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arizona
State Credit Union
encourages community members to get rid of old,
sensitive documents by shredding and recycling them at one of the Credit
Union’s seven Shred-a-Thon events.

Members and non-members can also receive $150
when they open a qualifying checking account.*

Events will occur throughout the Credit Union’s Northern Arizona
branches with Chino Valley kicking off the series on April 8. This is
free to all members of the community and helps raise awareness about the
importance of shredding personal documents to protect against identity
theft.

“More than 48,000 pounds of sensitive documents were shredded during
last year’s Shred-a-Thon events, demonstrating the need for this
service,” said David E. Doss, President/CEO of Arizona State Credit
Union. “As a local financial cooperative, we feel it is our
responsibility to provide this opportunity to the communities we serve.”

This is the fifth consecutive year Arizona State Credit Union has hosted
shred events. As part of a sustainable model, this green initiative is
just one of many outreach programs that give back to members and Arizona
communities.

Documents to bring to the Shred-a-Thons include bank statements, tax
returns, medical bills, credit card statements and other personal
documents.

Shred-a-Thons will be hosted at seven of the Northern Arizona State
Credit Union branches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The events are open to all
members of the community, with a limit of five boxes per person. Below
is a complete list of branch locations and dates:
