First National Bank to host ‘Shred Fest’

IRON RIVER— In today’s world of fraud, scams and identity theft, it’s important to take measures toward identity protection. As a service to the community, First National Bank & Trust will sponsor “Shred Fest” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, June 28, in the bank parking lot at 901 Riverside Plaza in Iron River.  
    First National Bank & Trust has once again retained Country Mile Document Destruction Inc. to have its state-of-the art, mobile shredding truck and staff at the shred site. This service is free for everyone in the community - residents, home office workers, community organizations and small businesses.
    To make the process efficient, bring only paper documents with personal information to the shred site, in paper bags or cardboard boxes. Credit cards, staples and small clips can also be put through the shredder, but make sure there is no large binder clips, metal ring binders, plastic covers, books (phone books, catalogs, etc.) or other contaminates in the papers.
    If unsure if it can be destroyed at this event, just separate it from the paper documents so a crew member can evaluate it. First National Bank & Trust reserves the right to refuse materials that will jam or damage the shredder.
    Due to heavy volume, guests may bring a maximum of five boxes of personal documents per vehicle to shred. Donations will be accepted during this event. All proceeds will be given to Kinship of Iron County, nonprofit organization serving the youth of Iron County Michigan through the transformative power of mentorship.
    For additional information on the event, contact First National Bank & Trust at 265-5163.
