PLYMOUTH, Minn. (Oct. 24, 2019) – TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union securely shredded more than 39 tons or 78,098 pounds of confidential documents for the community at eight shred events in Minnesota and Wisconsin in 2019. During TruStone’s spring events, more than 20 tons of documents were shredded, with the fall events yielding about 19 tons of shredded material.
“The secure destruction of financial documents is one of the easiest things people can do to avoid identity theft,” says Lisamarie Meyer, Senior Vice President and Director of Minnesota Branches at TruStone Financial. “Our members are very grateful for this service and look forward to it every year.”
During its fall shred events, the credit union asked participants for optional donations to the TruStone Financial Foundation, an organization founded to help support
financial education and other charitable efforts within TruStone’s neighboring communities. In all, $1,600 was raised for the Foundation.
TruStone Financial hosts shred events at its Minnesota and Wisconsin branches every spring and fall. The next shred events will take place in spring of 2020.
