Peggy Mehl, Oregon State Credit Union’s Director of Regional Branch Services (left) works with Vicki Deaton, Loan Officer at TLC’s Lincoln City branch to prepare documents for shredding. 

Two local credit unions hosted a Shred Day event on Saturday, July 27. TLC, a Division of Fibre Federal Credit Union and Oregon State Credit Union joined together to fight identity theft by securely shredding financial documents.

Shredding paper helps protects people from identity theft and is good for the environment. Credit union volunteers served 131 cars and worked with Access, a Records and Information Management Services company, to shred and dispose of 3,550 pounds of documents.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, this equates to:

- 29 trees saved

- 11,915 gallons of water saved

- 134 gallons of water saved

- 102 cubic yards of air pollution saved

- Six cubic yards of landfill saved

Volunteers also collected a large amount of food donations and $315 in cash for the Lincoln City Food Pantry.
