Baltimore, Maryland

Securityplus Federal Credit Union held their first free community shred day on Saturday, September 21st. A Cintas shred truck was onsite and easy drive-n-drop service allowed the Credit Union to shred 10,000 pounds of documents for over 200 community members in only 180 minutes!

While the event officially began at 9 a.m., the first car arrived at 7:45 a.m. By 8:45 a.m. there were 60 community members eagerly waiting to shred old financial forms, checkbooks and a variety of other personal documents.

Brett Noll, Securityplus CEO, stated, “The turnout to this event exceeded our expectations. Allowing people in the community to securely dispose of paperwork containing personal information is a great way to guard against identity theft. We look forward to offering this event again in the spring.”

Securityplus Federal Credit Union is a $363 million not-for-profit, member-owned, full service financial institution, with eight branches. Their newest branch will open in the Northwest Plaza Shopping Center (Baltimore City) in November. Securityplus serves over 33,000 members in the greater Baltimore community.
