Local Credit Union hosts 4th Annual Shred Event
DAHLGREN, VA (September 28, 2020) – Topside Federal Credit Union, the area’s largest locally-owned credit union, is committed to helping the community properly dispose of sensitive data. Topside FCU’s latest free Shred Day Event was held on September 26 at their Massaponax branch in Fredericksburg VA. The event resulted in a total of over 16,000 pounds of paper collected and shredded, and almost $2,000 raised for Germanna Community College’s Gladys P. Todd Academy.
“Topside is happy to provide this valuable service to the communities we serve,” said Bruce Six, Topside FCU’s CEO. “We encourage everyone to take advantage of these free events to help protect their privacy and security. We are dedicated to helping our members and the community stay safe by providing these free opportunities to dispose of personal documents securely.”
Topside Federal Credit Union began hosting its free Shred Day Events in 2017 in response to their members’ needs for secure and safe document disposal. The events have grown in popularity and demand over the years and the Credit Union plans to continue shredding sensitive information for their community members for years to come and collecting donations for various area non-profits in the process.
