Free shredding offered

In celebration of Oregon Community Bank Week, Pioneer Trust Bank in Salem is holding a free document shredding event benefiting Marion Polk Food Share.

 The community shred event is taking place Saturday, Oct. 24 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Pioneer Trust Bank Medical Center Branch located at 1190 Oak Street SE in Salem. 

Pioneer Trust Bank invites community members to drop off their food donation and their paper documents. There is a 10-box limit on shredding documents, which will be securely destroyed and recycled by an on-site mobile shredding truck According to a 2019 Shred-it Fraud Awareness Week Survey, nearly 30% of Americans do not shred paper or physical documents containing sensitive information before throwing them away at home. With identity fraud on the rise and now affecting millions of U.S. consumers, securely destroying documents that contain personal information is one of the best ways consumers can protect themselves from would-be thieves.
