To raise awareness of identity theft and help consumers keep personal information safe, the Sanatoga branch office of National Penn Bank, 1830 E. High St., will be the staging ground Oct. 11 for a fall “Shred Your Stuff” event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A mobile shredder truck sponsored by the bank will accept, shred and securely dispose of up to four boxes (no larger than 16 inches long, 13 wide and 10 high) of paper records per individual. No-longer-needed receipts, invoices and other personal documents all are prime candidates for shredding.
Removal of small paper clips and staples isn’t necessary; they’ll go through the shredder. However, plastic binders or metal binder spring clips won’t, so be sure they are removed. Shredding will be held rain or shine.
National Penn Bank’s nine earlier Shred Your Stuff events, conducted this May and June, helped more than 700 people safely dispose of more than 43,000 pounds of confidential material, according to its press release.
Similar events are scheduled at bank branch offices in Wyomissing and Mountaintop PA, Sept. 20; Eagle PA, Sept. 27; Bethlehem PA, Oct. 4; and Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia, Oct. 18. For more information, call the bank’s Information Center at 800-822-3321.
