Celebrate Shredfest by bringing old documents for onsite disposal at PBC Credit Union


Free credit reports, refreshment salso on tap at Aug. 2 event in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Shredfest will debut this summer as a service of PBC Credit Union. The inaugural event will take place Aug. 2 at the company’s West Palm Beach location – 3469 Summit Blvd. – and will feature a morning of free, unlimited shredding. Voluntary donations will be accepted for PBC Credit Union’s Charity Fund, which supports local organizations through community outreach efforts. Residents can bring their confidential, sensitive or unwanted documents for quick disposal. “With the increases in identity theft and fraud, the credit union would like to help our community safely dispose of their sensitive documents,” PBC Credit Union President / CEO John Deese said. “With Shredfest, we can help ensure this while, at the same time, helping the environment.” Refreshments will be served, and PBC Credit Union will offer complimentary credit reports to anyone who requests one. Those interested in becoming credit-union members can sign up onsite. Hours are 9 a.m. to noon. Cardboard boxes will not be shredded.
