Beverly Bank & Trust is pleased to invite all community members to their 6th annual FREE Neighborhood Shred Event on Saturday, April 21st from 8:30am - 1:00pm at the bank, 10258 S. Western Avenue.

The event is open to the entire neighborhood, and the shredding service is free of charge. To participate, residents must stop by the bank and pick up a coupon good for up to three boxes of paper2. Then, on the event date, the bank will provide coffee and donuts while attendees watch their personal documents disappear.

All of the paper that is shredded at the event is 100% destroyed and then recycled. At the bank’s shredding event in April 2010, they recycled 12,595 pounds of shredded paper which equated to saving 110 trees; 43,480 gallons of water; 25,517 kilowatts of energy; and hundreds of instances of identity theft.

“Identity theft is a serious crime. Nearly 9 million Americans will be affected by identity theft this year alone,” said Dennis O’Malley, President of Beverly Bank & Trust. “As your neighborhood bank, we want to help safeguard you and your family against the possibility of identity theft and fraud.”

Attendees will also receive a FREE document shredder when they open an Interest Checking Account1. Be sure to bring your family and friends and join Beverly Bank & Trust for all the fun!
