Free Community Shred Day
Dates & Times
1502 N. McKenzie St. Foley, AL 36535
On Friday, April 21, Bryant Bank and Shred-It will offer Foley and Baldwin County residents the opportunity to have paper records and data storage materials shredded and recycled during an inaugural Community Shred Day. This free event aims to raise public awareness of the need to securely destroy confidential material in order to prevent identity theft and fraud, as well as to encourage people to recycle more.
Identity theft and consumer fraud continue to rise each day. As a community bank, we make it a priority to look after, and educate, our customers in any way that we can. Bryant Bank is glad to offer this free event to Baldwin County citizens on April 21, said Alex Sweeney, Bryant Banks Branch Manager in Foley.
On-site trucks will collect materials from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the Foley bank branch, located at 1502 N. McKenzie St., Foley. Accepted items include: old bills, check stubs, health information, or any other confidential information that has accumulated over the years. Staples, paper clips, folders or rubber bands do not need to be removed from documents. Hamburgers, hotdogs and beverages will also be served for those that drop off materials. The event is also supported by Shred-It and Lamar Advertising.
Bryant Bank and Shred-It understand the importance of taking action in regards to identity theft education. Having the opportunity to securely dispose of documents helps decrease the risk of identity theft dramatically and we hope that Baldwin County residents will take advantage of this free event, said Sweeney.
